I know, the hypocrisy is unbelievable. There is a real sense of utter paranoia about some of them in the Paris thread.

The fact that they have to change something so trivial like the view count simply to stop the London thread becoming the most viewed thread is unbelievable. The fact that it was a moderator who did it is even more astounding. They of all people should be setting an example.

Like I said originally, I have never noticed or cared about it.. 'Defibkiller' brought it to my attention... and then they have the audacity to try and make it sound like WE are at fault for posting relevant and insightful information in the London thread..

Like it is some kind of conspiracy against the Paris thread...

No...

The fact is, that there is much more happening in London right now and more people are looking at the London thread than the Paris one. Which is why they have to resort to such pathetic actions once the London thread threatens to be the top viewed part of the Project & Construction section.

It will probably happen again too.

But, to be honest.. who cares. Let them behave like that. Let us keep the London thread clean and informative and 'on topic'. And let this post be the last we talk of it.

All the best. Please continue to enjoy the London thread everyone. And keep posting anything that is relevant!

[OFFTOPIC]

@londonfox-> i appreciate the london thread but... you represent an embarassment by the way you act with "the pool" of londoners here which are 'londoncentrics'

i love London but please just recognize that londoners guys(you and some others) establish this childist competition [/OFFTOPIC]

the development of London concerns too much towers. no real artistic things since the 'marvel' Orbit

The Francis Crick Institute - Biometrics Centre at Kings Cross (Europe's largest dedicated research building) is coming along nicely.

You can read all about it on their website.

Have been through that area a fair few times in the past year, looking forward to seeing the new frontage of the older building, it's about time something was done with it.

As long as the cladding lives up to the renders I think it's safe to say it's going to be a fine addition to the waterfront.

Interesting stupidity competition going on here:

-1st candidate to win the stupidity award: the one who changed the views number
-2nd: forumers comparing the numbers all the time and therefore realising the change
-3rd: forumers outraged by the views number's change, posting about it in the "CITY/METRO COMPILATION" thread (which is by the way not the same one as the "LETS COMPARE OUR SILLY EGOS" thread) as if others would give a shit about it.

Please continue posting projects' information and forget about it.

Thanks!

Nice
Any idea who's occupying 25 churchill square?
I got to say I'm dissapointed by the cladding... No where near as good as citi's, which it essentially covers from some angles...

PARIS vs. LONDON PAGE VIEWING FIGURES. Not really stupid to compare them - if they were accurate. The figures show not only the level of interest in what is going on, but also the relative vitality of the two cities from an architectural point of view. The fact is that the London figure is genuine; while the Paris figure is the work of cheats - something they have to do because Paris is relatively moribund at present - unlike in the 70s and 80s.

The European Medicines Agency are taking up half the tower's space apparently, no idea about the other half though sorry.

It has a similar look to the Olympic site regeneration.

I like it, its clean and simple.

United House to start £59m London Soho resi job

Contractor United House is preparing to start enabling works next month to build an 80-flat key worker block in central London.

The scheme will see a 1930s police station demolished to make way for the scheme, which is being developed by Barratt East London, in Berwick Street in the heart of Soho.

The site, which has lain vacant for almost 13 years after it was decommissioned and sold, has been kick-started after unconditional contracts were signed between the Greater London Authority and developer Barratt Homes.

The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, said: “After years of lying dormant it is fantastic news that this site will be welcoming in the diggers and bringing new homes to the heart of historic Soho. The project is a great example of how vacant public land can be released to deliver more housing for Londoners, as well as giving a boost to the economy and to jobs in the construction industry.”

Jeffrey Adams, Group Chief Executive of United House, said: “We are creating homes in the very heart of London, where there has always been a strong, local community and an exciting, diverse buzz that brings visitors from all over the world.

“United House has a great track record with developments in central London and we are looking forward to working with Barratt Homes and all the partners to deliver the scheme.”
