North Quay (and Riverside South) have been approved for years, the question is whether CWG will ever get enough big pre-lets to cause them to get built.

i know riverside was approved, but when i checked emporis north quey was always just proposed. because i check quite alot and the page looked different then i realised its because north quey had changed. i know people in the past told me it was approved but the sites always said proposed so when emporis changed i wasnt sure if it was just keeping up to date or if there was solid news and it was being taken that step further.

As demonstrated with Beetham's previous towers, in reality the glass is never that transparent and is more than likely to be 'cheapened' down when built.

Construction has started on this 24-storey tower in Canary Wharf, known as "No.1 The Gateway".

Not exactly huge, but it should help stretch the cluster north a little -

UN seeks to block highrise developments in the City

This was mentioned briefly a while back, but there's a bit more news this time.


Some of Britain's most famous landmarks, including the Tower of London, could be placed on the UN's "heritage in danger" list. Inspectors say the sites could be overwhelmed by skyscrapers and modern developments. David Sillito reports.

Video link - http://news.bbc.co.uk/nolavconsole/u...wm_6072198.stm



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



Below is an extract from the most recent UNESCO resolution, made at the World Heritage Council's meeting in Vilnius during the summer.

Full copy available here - http://whc.unesco.org/archive/2006/whc06-30com-7bE.pdf


Draft Decision: 30 COM 7B.74

The World Heritage Committee,

1. Having examined Document WHC-06/30.COM/7B,

2. Recalling Decision 29 COM 7B.89, adopted at its 29th session (Durban, 2005),

3. Notes with great concern that proposed new developments around the Tower of London and Westminster Palace, Westminster Abbey and Saint Margaret’s Church World Heritage properties, appear not to respect the significance of either World Heritage property, their settings and related vistas;

4. Regrets that the London Plan policies to protect the World Heritage property and its environment do not seem to be applied effectively, that statutory protection for views to and from the Tower could be diminished, and that the management plan has still not been finalised;

5. Deeply regrets that the requested in-depth study on the possible impact of development projects in the immediate vicinity of the World Heritage property has not been submitted and that no detailed skyline study of the Tower, its setting and views has yet been carried out and urges the State Party to carry out such a skyline survey as soon as possible to provide a qualitative framework for assessing the impact of new development on views and setting that contribute to the outstanding universal value of the Tower;

6. Requests the State Party to invite a joint World Heritage Centre/ICOMOS monitoring mission to assess the impact of current planning proposals and to review the possibility of inclusion of the property in the List of World Heritage in Danger, including benchmarks and timeframes for corrective action;

7. Also requests the State Party to provide the World Heritage Centre with an updated report, by 1 February 2007 on the progress of its undertakings in this area, and on the state of conservation of the property, for examination by the Committee at its 31st session in 2007.

LOL they're a bit late, practically everything is approved and about to start construction. I wonder what Ken and the government would say if they tried to get everything cancelled.

They should mind their own bloody businesses

Its not as if the Tower of London is being razed to the ground... The proximity of a buildings like The London Eye to The Palace of Westminster only goes to show modern and classic architecture can happily coexist cheek by jowel.

But those low rise ground scrapers next to the Tower are appalling. As is the Potter's Field development and the rest of More London.

They do have a point.

If true, it should be somewhere between 220m and 240m. Hopefully it is true.
