Found this litte run down on Vauxhall developments but I think its quite old- It does havea cool view of the StGeorges tower that I haven't seen before with a view from the West.

presumably the £3.5 million apartments have a river view, and don't face a bus station or congested road.

Excellent work James.

Don't suppose you fancy doing a 2012 rendering of this, do you:

I had a feeling they wouldn't be made of wood

I love em! More than most of the other proposals in London at the moment.

They look like bigger versions of the Ontario Tower.

Yes, that render looks about right considering the size.
The taller of the two is 52 floors. Thats more than 1 Canada square!

If I lived by the river it would have to be somewhere near Bankside, Butlers Wharf or Borough Market. Oh yes, that would be after some handy lottery funding though.

I agree! They will form a nice silhouette on the skyline.

There are apparently going to be lots of towers going up around this area of a similar size, so im sure the place will start getting its act together. We could see st georges wharf rising within months, the site is cleared and it is approved. I can see it starting soon, so dont worry, this area will become a really nice place soon

oh, and whats wrong with the MI5 building?

I really like the MI5 building!

These twin towers fit in really well with the emerging vauxhall area I believe and is one place where there could be quite a few new residential skyscrapers. I like the size of these two too and they are very reminiscent of ontario tower
