Precious views, or rather a bunch of people who want to 'protect' them seem to be the biggest problem.

Well those people can get stuffed, but this tower is going to soar!
I love the design and I'm sure many others here do as well!

This has won it's public inquiry! It's now officially approved, with work to 'begin immediately' according to the Architects Journal

Simpson and Wilkinson Eyre South Bank towers approved
26 March, 2009


Communities secretary Hazel Blears has approved two huge tower schemes on London’s South Bank by Ian Simpson and Wilkinson Eyre following last year’s public inquiry.

Scroll down for Ian Simpson's reaction

In a statement released by CLG this morning, it emerged that the minister has backed the findings of the planning inspector in supporting Simpson’s mixed use 51-storey Beetham Tower at One Blackfriars Road and Wilkinson Eyre’s neighbouring two-tower office and residential scheme for Circleplane.

Blears called in both projects following backing by Southwark Council but opposition by Westminster Council and Royal Parks which were concerned about the towers’ impact on views across the capital.

It emerged during the inquiry, held last autumn, that Mayor of London Boris Johnson was also opposed to the buildings, labelling them “unacceptable”.

The CLG statement said: “She [Blears] considers that the proposals are in appropriate locations for tall buildings…and that the design of both buildings would be of a high quality, inclusive and sustainable design which would improve the character of the area and produce attractive public spaces.”






The other two towers behind it in this pic have been approved as well

I know the Jumeirah Tower isn't everyone's cup of tea, but I like it a lot, so I'm very happy with this decision.

God bless you, Blears!!

As for Bozzer, when he can design something better than this beaut.. I'll accept his criticism.. until then, he can concentrate on putting one foot infront of the other!

So this one's approved, after being all but dead in the water? Great news! I've always said that this is one of the most beautiful residential proposals in the world right now and I'm glad that it's going to be built, after all.

When will construction officially start and will the shitty state of the global economy delay it further? Is there any chance of this being finished in time for the London 2012 Olympics?

By 2012, London will have a truly world class skyline.

The "anti-skyscraper" Boris Johnson was unable to stop this one then? Good!

Is there any information when work on this will start? I'm also guessing that the initial goal of having this open by the start of the olympics is impossible.

edit: This isn't the london forum. Sorry for the unnecessary bump.
