Wow! I knew about the Vauxhall Tower and Vauxhall Bondway, had no idea 3 others were in the pipeline!

I'd love to see a full redevelopment of that area... together with making Battersea Power Station a leisure marina.

Would be an impressive group of buildings.

The towers in that last pic... are they massing concepts, or is that what they will actually look like?

There are already standing a lot of luxury residentials in that part of London. So yes, I think this isa good development. Great to hear there are such nice plans for the Vauxhall area.

London is already amazing, imagine how it will be with al those extra "high quality" skyscrapers!

I'm against building a new cluster in LDN.The buildings for that place seem to be good,but they could be built in other places,such the City or CW.

All those clusters will grow together someday, at least if this rate of construction continues. I think this will be great.

I think these tower designed are wasted in Vauxhall...they'd be better suited nearer to Central London IMO.

Great to see al these devolopments. But it would be more great to see them u/c... Something that could take years in London, too many years...

More towers are always good. But to create a skyline that's as wide as the Canal isnt necesary...
But wthat the hell, just built.
London is doing it's best to get the best skyline of europe.
Btw, does MI6 resides in the area of vauxhall???

Isn't it possible to have London's skyscrapers in one area, instead having them scattered aound?

London is MASSSIVE and can easily accomodate several clusters.

Lol that's right... it would take me at least 30mins to travel up to DarJoLe's East London by car, and longer by transport on any average day.

I wouldn't mind a new cluster... it would balance things out...

One cluster in the west - Vauxhall.

One cluster in the east - Canary Wharf!

and all the clusters in London are by the Thames.
