I expect that wish will come true if they get approval. These things should sell like delicious, delicious hot cakes

Just a quick mention fo rthe bus depot thing thay have in that photo, it's an amazing piece of architecture, and is actually worth taking a trip to have a look if you are in the area.

It's certainly very 'LOOK AT ME!' but I like it.

Planning Consultant:

Planning consent anticipated: 2007


New renders (there a bit small mind)







It is also in London and Regionals last company synopsis dated feb 2007, so the project is still very much alive

IMO they put St George's Wharf tower to shame
Beautiful tower.

Agree, I really want these to go ahead. The recent models of St George's Wharf show it could actually turn out to be very nice, and together with these a good cluster should begin to form

Wow, can't believe I haven't seen that beauty before, great looking tower! That area deffinitely has the potential to form quite an attractive cluster in years to come.

But.....what's happening with it now??

This looks great...like a stretched version of Ontario Tower down in Docklands.

I think it will fit in perfectly with St Georges Wharf - which, provided it has good cladding, will be a classy, understated building (IMO)

was at St George's Wharf last night, any boy, will these towers be a fantastic addition and draw attention from the Tower of Bara-dur on the riverside. Problem is that you'll never get away from the fact that this is a huge road and transport interchange. I mean its like 5 lanes coming from Battersea towards Vauxhall Bridge and MI5 - won't be the nicest environ, but I suppose the higher you are the better it will be.

never seems to stop people from buying houses right next to a motorway where I live so I don't see why it should make too much of a difference that these are next to one.

Have these shrunk? They look smaller than they were.

No. Infact, they may actually be 180m. Notice the outline of St Georges Wharf on the first pic behind the shorter tower, and how the taller one reaches the same height.

the shorter tower certainly looks shorter than those original renders, perhaps its just the angle
