I'm relieved - the previous development was too tall, the Nouvel proposal was too and missed the opportunity for a route through the site, It also would have had sheets of scale-less glass with last years Nouvel-brand spray colour all over it. This one is the right height, has human scale detail and has the route. Much better, sorry.

I couldn't agree less. The site is not zoned for skyscrapers, and this design is an excellent solution imo. It's interesting and different from every angle. It has coherence, yet also succeeds in breaking up its bulk. When you look at all the images here, you can see how interesting this will be to walk around.

'Europe's biggest' free wi-fi zone set for London

Mobile operator O2 is to provide free internet to "millions" of residents and visitors in central London by launching Europe's largest free wi-fi zone.

The service will be rolled out across the boroughs of Westminster and Kensington and Chelsea in 2012.

It will be powered by a system installed on street furniture.

O2 said the deal, which will have no cost to the taxpayer, will enable visitors to "make the most of what London has to offer".

Great news!

The worlds largest insurance broker AON will move its global headquarters from Chicago to London instead, so that it can access global markets better and be in closer proximity to Lloyd's of London (the worlds oldest and largest insurance market).

Bloomberg explain why they made the move...

Londoners are proud of the Shard, which will be Western Europe's tallest building when it is completed later this year - but a new report may force the capital to swallow its pride.



It finds an "unhealthy correlation" between the building of skyscrapers and subsequent financial crashes, identifying nearly 20 cases in the past 150 years where architectural exuberance has preceded an economic fall. The report by Barclays Capital cites nearly 20 famous examples around the world, ranging from the Empire State Building in New York to Dubai's Burj Khalifa.

Report author Andrew Lawrence said the pattern appears to hold in London. He cites the completion of Tower 42 in 1979, ahead of the early 1980s recession, of One Canada Square in Canary Wharf in 1991 amid another downturn and the Millennium Tower in 2009, in the midst of the current crisis as examples.

Lawrence concludes that with China and India currently building dozens of towers, it may be time to think twice about investing in emerging markets.

This project is much better than Nouvel's horrible project.
