London Bridge Tower 306m - demolition starting late 2006, which will take around 12 months. Construction starting in mid-late 2007.

Columbus Tower 237m - currently on hold, but not cancelled. Start date unknown.

122 Leadenhall 225m - the lease on the current building expires in early 2008. Construction won't start before then.

Minerva 217m + 30m spire - this project has faced major difficulties, but IS still going ahead. They are changing the floorplates and building layout to make the tower more viable. Start date unknown, but probably around late 2006/early 2007.

North Quay 1 216m - this tower is being redesigned, it's a fairly long-term project and I wouldn't expect this to start before 2008.

Beetham Tower 215m - likely to be approved in January/February 2006. The site has already been demolished and cleared, and Beetham always build their towers extremely quickly, so we can expect this to start by next summer.

Riverside South 1 214m - this will almost certainly be the next major skyscraper to start construction in Canary Wharf. I would expect a start date of around late 2006-mid 2007.

Heron Quays West 1 214m - a long term project, still in pre-planning. Unlikely to start before 2009.

North Quay 3 203m - this is part of a triple-tower scheme. See the details for North Quay 1, above.

Heron Tower (110 Bishopsgate) 202m + 40m spire - this project has been dragging on for years, but is definitely going ahead. There has been some progress recently, with the developer showing firm commitment to fund and build the tower, and there has even been a height increase. The current outlook would suggest a start date of either late 2006, or early-mid 2007.

Riverside South 2 189m - this is part of a twin-tower scheme. See the details for Riverside South 1, above.

St George's Wharf (Vauxhall Tower) 181m - fully approved, after a lengthy legal battle. The site has already been demolished and cleared. I would expect this to start construction in 2006.

Suffolk House 180m - I have no idea when this will start. As a pure guess, I would say late 2007.

Vauxhall Bondway Tower 180m - still awaiting final approval.

Wilkinson Eyre Tower 176m - still in planning. If the nearby Beetham Tower is approved next month, it will massively increase its chances of going ahead.

Stratford City Tower 170m - a long term project; part of the regeneration in East London for the Olympic Games. I've no idea when this will start, but it should be completed by 2012.

Broadgate Tower 164m - recently started construction. The core should be rising by March/April 2006.

Grand Union Building 158m including spire - groundwork has already started, but has been on-hold for the last couple of years. I don't know when it will continue.

Heron Quays West 2 156m - this is part of a twin-tower scheme. See the details for Heron Quays West 1, above.

Pan Peninsula Tower 147m - recently started construction. The core should be rising in the next couple of months. It will be one of the tallest residential buildings in the UK.
Thank you!!

i see u did go ahead and start a new London thread wjfox, good lad

I know this sounds kinda stupid, but I keep expecting a new SS design for London each week and I get really fed up when I dont hear any new news for a few weeks. Kinda naive I know...but when I first came to the SS City website about 6 months ago I had only heard of a few new SS proposals and exploring the forums has been hugely enjoyable, seeing all the new projects and renders.

Darn it, I wish they would propose a massive, beautiful twin tower project somewhere in London...god I wud just punch a hole through the wall with glee if that happened...maybe one day...

London is investing 1.5billion of its own funds in the games, which has never been done before.

Since the start of the first thread, how much progress has London made? how many buildings have began construction, how many new proposed, etc...

This is since august the 19th, so 4 months ago.
