I really love how the Chelsea Barracks are turning out.
Thank you Prince Charles, future King of England, for getting involved.

I believe that it will, by the sheer weight of popular demand alone.

Lombard Wharf looks like something that's better suited for in Brighton or Bournemouth, it looks great nonetheless.

Lombard Wharf would look far more out of place in Brighton or Bournemouth!

Are they planning on densifying that area and creating a cluster? If so, when will they build that bridge to connect that area to Imperial Wharf station?

There will be further densification in the area, with schemes like York Place, the Candle Factory and Plantation Wharf all recently proposed/approved.

The timeline of the Diamond Jubilee Bridge (Imperial Wharf to Battersea) will be clearer once funding is secured.

Seriously thought Lombard Wharf was a render even though I already knew about it.

I was expecting Baltimore tower to look something like Lombard wharf, I wish it was possible to switch these two towers location and increase the height of LW to around 150metres.
