Another rendering by Chest.

Millharbour (140m) is the tower over to the far right. Ontario Tower (100m) is the smaller tower on the far left of the image:

Great rendering! This has to be the tallest building under construction in London, right?

Columbus isn't dead, it's just on hold.

The twin towers of Riverside South (189m/214m) are being marketed by Songbird Estates, and are believed to be starting construction in 2006.

Canary Wharf has been gaining A LOT of tenants this year, so things are definitely looking good.

That render with columbus and ontario at the end of fragmentors post looks sweet, especially with swiss re and tower 42 at the end. Imagine what it'll look like with all the towers up down there too

Great to see this construction, but i am not the only one who can't wait to see a serious (high-rise)building boom in London. I assume in 2006?
