one more post London and you'll be on 1000...random comment, and soon to be outdated, I know...but I felt like commenting on something.

BTW, those renders are very tastey indeed. London would look dam fine with a 400m tower...ah well...some day...

this time of year is very slow for proposals i believe, things should really pick up in a month or two though.

It's a mixed-use development totalling around 3,500,000 square feet, and will almost double the land area of the Docklands cluster. However, despite being literally next door, it's actually a separate development from Canary Wharf.

Also, the buildings will be shorter than the Canary Wharf towers. The 2 tallest will be around 140m. Still, this should form a nice "step down" from the bigger skyscrapers and will help balance the skyline out.

The masterplan has already been approved, and construction is expected to start next year. British Waterways held a competition to select a development partner for the project, and chose Ballymore Properties as the preferred partner. Ballymore are working on 2 other major projects in the Docklands - Pan Peninsula (147m) and Ontario Tower (110m), both of which are already under construction.

who would have thought that 20 years ago, the whole area was a derilict brownfield site, a relic of the once busiest port in the world. The whole area looked to be abandoned forever, but now look at it, the world's largest commercial development, adding greatly to the economy and skyine.

But lets not forget, it all started with this:
