According to jef, PWC have began vacating Southwark tower! The Shard is now one step closer to becoming reality! YAY!

Really? This is brilliant. And Jef is ever the reliable source so I'll take his word for it.

Believe it or not, that render isn't just a vision. Its actually going to be a reality with most of the projects starting late 2006/2007. Furthermore, Bishopsgate Tower, the super tall isn't even in the render either!

Minerva is hanging on the balance tho but I sure do hope it gets built. Just look how big it looks compared to the rest. It's huge. I want it soo bad.

jack rabbit slim - it was Barclays bank's old HQ before they moved to CW. Not sure if they still have staff there. I'm not a great fan of this myself and was kind of hoping that it might be up for redevelopment into a cool 30 floor tower!

I like the shape, it adds a bit of variety to the Square Mile.

How rude of me

You must tell me how you done 122L. It's the best render done unpprooffessionnally that i've ever seen. What type of render did you use then? - Is it the one shown in the Full Lopndon Summary thread?
