Doon Street

Borough: Lambeth
Size: 1,800sq m
Status: Under construction



Doon Street is a major mixed-use development adjacent to the National Theatre on London's South Bank including an indoor swimming and leisure centre, a new headquarters for Rambert Dance Company, public open space, retail and commercial facilities, and 355 apartments housed in a slender tower with breathtaking views of the River Thames and the city. The scheme is conceived as a terrace of different buildings, each expressing its function while forming an overall composition on the street. The materials chosen reflect the light coloured masonry and reconstituted stone of the development’s neighbours with self finished metals for louvres, spandrel and ventilation panels. The indoor swimming pool and leisure centre provides the community with a much needed facility and is the catalyst for the project. An area of 1800 sq m is given over to public open space including a new public square at the site’s western end with links to Waterloo station and bridge.

Cherry Orchard Road

Borough: Croydon, London
Status: Proposed



This significant mixed-use development on a 1.6 hectare site will transform the area surrounding East Croydon Station with a series of new residential towers, animated at ground level with retail, restaurants and cafes. A crystalline canopy will link the towers at their base, creating new routes and streetscape across the site, terminating at a new public plaza to the south.

It's not. Neither is Crossharbour (well the tower part). And those designs for Crossharbour and Cherry Orchard road are old designs.

i am not very sure about the current status of this project. i walked around the national theatre a few days ago and i believe i didn't see any major crane or anything like that. but i will try to find more info about it to confirm whether the construction has already started or not.

You keep posting outdated renderings, SO143. As Moses has already pointed out Crossharbour Tower and the Cherry Orchard Road Towers have been redesigned and the rendering of Doon Street Tower does not show the latest design either. I think everyone would appreciate it if you checked the currentness of articles and visualisations before you post them here. Thank you.

well let me clarity this, ok i am not the one who creates renders and that one posted above is the latest render found on skyscrapersnews which announces every latest construction project. but if they don't post new renders there, then i can't post new renders here, simple as that mate. on top of that i didn't know it's an outdated one because it's not been mentioned there as well.

But besides that I recommend you to take a look into the UK Forum, there the threads are kept up to date by a lot of well-informed people.

So much work and regeneration going on in London right now!! It must be the busiest city in terms of construction outside of Asia in the world.

I always wondered this. It does seem that London is the busiest developed city in terms of development. Although I would say it is a close match between New York and London.

What a pity, demolishing a part of London's history to build for sure some plain & modern buildings in return...how pathetic .

Those ancient buildings are beautiful & must remain imo.
As already mentioned they have already gone, it seems the South side facades are being retained for Jermyn Street which maybe in a conservation area.

Anyway this is in Westminster, the same council who tries to get tall buildings stopped or chopped in half outside of their boundary all in the name of heritage. When really it is just about power.

An insight into London politics for you.

I think London is undergoing more than New York...

Granted New York is having the entire 'twin towers' area being rebuilt... but London is constructing at least 4 new skyscrapers in the City area alone.. not to mention the new projects now in the Canary Wharf area with Wood Wharf being green lighted for development, then there is the Olympic Park area.. and Cross Rail (Europe's biggest construction project)... the Batersea area, Vauxhall, Croydon, Euston, King's Cross, London Bridge... the list is endless...
