Brittianna airport question

From the pics i have seen of the airport I can find no jetways or gates. Where are they? Or do people get to their plane by bus? Also will there be High Speed rail access to the airport from mainland Europe & other parts of Greater London, Kent, and the rest of England?

There's extensive use of jet bridges here.

A decision on whether to build a Heathrow spur for the High Speed 2 (HS2) line won't happen before 2015.

Amazing Pictures, according to property week the Heron Tower is 60% occupied now with 4 new lettings signed, maybe good news for other office skyscrapers with supply tightening.

With London now becoming a highrise city it's creating a distinct style alongside the "jazzy" towers. This type of building facade is incredibly popular with the in-situ concrete frame/facing brick with rainscreen cladding and now juliette balconies if not the full hog. It's actually extremely continental in a way. Think it looks lovely. London's street life cant really get much better but with an more tall buildings and the hance for this "vibe" to spread upwards the city will be fantastically unqiue and quirky.

















And also thanlyou SE9. You're updates are amazing. Best thread on the forum.

No problem!

One London forumer dubbed this new type of building style in London as the 'London Vernacular style'. Modern rectilinear architecture using facing bricks or reconstituted stone, incorporating balconies and large windows.

It's not a trend I could have predicted, but I quite like it. I hope it becomes a new British vernacular. But I can't help but feel like it's something that's already become popular in Germany and Northern Europe.

It also reminds me of the 80's and 90's, because the brick smacks of the suburban public schools in America that I went to, which are all very blocky and industrial, with rectangular brick pillars.

It certainly has a Dutch feel to it.

According to CapMan on the UK forum, employees working at the Willis Building have been informed that works are about to begin on Lime Street Square, which will be followed by construction proper early next summer. Lime Street Square will be built across the street from the U/C 122 Leadenhall.
