just been annouced today. But its on the 88 Bishopsgate site, which had previous designs, and then they shelved that to work on something different.

42-storey Elephant tower approved
22 March 2006
London SE1 website team

A 42-storey tower at the Elephant and Castle has been granted planning permission by Southwark Council, as well as a new hotel and cinema on Elephant Road.

On Tuesday night Southwark Council approved two large developments at the Elephant and Castle which the council say will play a major role in the area’s £1.5 billion regeneration.

Multiplex, in joint venture with Espalier, will create a 147-metre, 42 storey residential tower on the Castle House site at the top of Walworth Road with 30 per cent affordable housing. The scheme will integrate wind turbines to bring energy costs down by 40 per cent for each of the 408 apartments.

Should be u/c by the end of the year apparently.
OMG!!!! I am in love with this one.

Turbines to supply electricity for the building

The 181m St Georges Wharf Tower which will begin construction soon has a turbine at the top (the corkscrew like device at the top). This turbine will provide enough electricity to power the public lighting (ie stairwells, corridors, lifts, etc....). All skyscrapers in London are now required to be energy efficient - either generating their own electricity (photovoltaic cladding, turbines, etc...) or be designed in a fashion that has a low carbon footprint (ie efficient logistics for construction, public transportation improvements provided, use of renewable materials where possible, etc...). Picture from www.skyscrapernews.com:

This could be joined by at least 4 neighbouring towers of similar height - a whole new cluster of residential skyscrapers.

In addition to St George's Wharf (181m), there are twin towers planned for Vauxhall Cross (2 x 170m), a tower planned for Vauxhall Bondway (180m) and a fifth tower for Nine Elms Lane which is due to be announced but is expected to be 180m.

There's yet another tower which is rumoured to be around 100m.

And bear in mind, this cluster will be just down the river from Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament. These towers will have quite an impact, and the views from the apartments will be stunning. I'd expect the penthouses to go for tens of millions of pounds.
