Correct. And the developers are planning to replace the hotel part with more apartments. Don't worry though, there will be viewing platforms on the Shard, 20 Fenchurch street (which will be free) along with the existing observation platforms on the Monument, St.Paul's and the Eye.

Not too keen on it to be honest...
That view will be great though cause The Shard and The Pinnacle look fantastic!

I doubt the City will have any major skyscraper soon after the current projects are finished so the South Bank is the future.

If I am not mistaken, there are a couple of other projects proposed surrounding the Beetham Tower. It would definitively be a nice cluster. The existing tower next to it will also get a recladding.

EDIT: found them

Walked past and saw the hoardings for this yesterday - the logo reminds me a little of Fenchurch St.

So happy this is going ahead - it's taken a bit of the sting out of the Pinnacle being put on hold again.

I think it has...but a new investor is needed to take over the project (if I'm not mistaken.) It's been one of my favourite projects in London for a long time...fingers crossed.

The scheme has a new developer, is undergoing slight changes and is due to start at the beginning of next year if I remember correctly.

This should be the next one to start, it'll be the best highrise in London if built.
