Love it.
A lot of projects going in London that are changing the skyline drastically and towards the right direction.

The new residential tower in CW is fitting the area really nicely What happened to the Baltimore Wharf tower project in CW?

I hope the project has been scrapped (or at least changed significantly)...

Think it's dead as a dodo!! I'm sure a Londoner could fill us in. Thought it looked great though!

The cladding will make or break that tower, because there's not much to it. Do like the slender form of it though. Could be a lot more boxy than it is.

It looks the the recently build twisting towers in Mississauga, Ontario. The result there was pretty good.

It's honestly what they should have done with Shanghai Tower.

They are selling the plot to another developer to clear debts... So yes, it's dead.

CW group announced that the size of CW skyline will be doubled by the end of 2020.

The competition between CW and The City is so awesome to watch. These skylines have completely different designs.

Looking good! With the Pinnacle looking set to resume construction again this year and the new Lime Street tower going up... The City will look gorgeous!

Developers plan new market for 'Shoreditch village'



Shoreditch is set to get a new market as part of a development on a former car park to be called Shoreditch Village.

Two families - White and Hall - got together in the 1970s and bought the run-down site between Shoreditch High Street and Great Eastern Street which until recently housed a depot.

The families, led by Dominic White who has worked in the property business for 20 years, have hired architects EllisMiller to draw up the plans.

Shoreditch Village will be anchored by a new market alongside 150,000 square feet of offices, shops, a hotel, restaurants, cafes and eight homes. If Hackney Council approve the scheme, construction could start by the end of next year. In the meantime, at the end of this month the site will house a pop-up street food market.

Where did the 8 lanes of railway come from?! I know city life is noisy, but I wouldn't like one of the track side apartments.

That's where they'll dump the 'affordable housing' residents...

They'll act as human soundproofing to soak up all the train noise for the wealthy foreigners who'll buy the luxury stuff.

Yes, I wonder if the brown units are for that purpose (they look decidedly less glamorous than the main complex)! Plus I notice they're tucked away and won't be visible from the river frontage.

Thanks for the pic, I recall now it's to the left of Battersea Park. Actually it's not as busy as all that, but still not the world's best view!
