Looking forward to it

BTW Newfoundland tower has been replaced by The Diamond Tower.



Also your current forum link to the Newfoundland thread actually links to the Baltimore Wharf thread for some reason.

http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1632163

Oh and Columbus tower should probably be changed to "The Hertsmere", since the old proposal doesn't appear to be going ahead and consultation is happening for this:

I'm also not sure what you want to do with Heron Quays West since the old proposal appears to have been scrapped, and the design for the new building hasn't yet surfaced.

SE9 great job. I think you can also add Universal Studio Park to large scale projects. Even though it's in Kent, I think it's still within London metro area.

It is according to the forum thread. Forumer DarJoLe requested a thread title change on the 24th of March to U/C.

Also apartments are being marketed for it, which say it is under construction in the description.

http://www.hastingsinternational.com...e/2672948.aspx

No images of the construction have been posted to the forum, so I'm simply going by the info above.
