Foster Designs New Luxurious City Residences

Adding to the growing amount of new residential developments in the City of London could soon be revised plans for Sugar Quay, or Waterside City as it was previously known.

Past proposals featured an office building between Lower Thames Street and the River Thames of approximately 21,000 square metres but these plans have now been dropped for a residential-led development that will have 165 apartments within it spread over the part nine, part eleven storey building. The ground floor will contain commercial space, namely a new riverside restaurant, on its southern side.

In addition to the new plans there's also a new architect - David Walker Architects have been replaced by Foster + Partners.

London's first 'town in a tower'

The 784ft skyscraper in Canary Wharf will have 822 homes, shops, a library... and even a cinema
  • Building will become second-tallest in Britain behind the Shard
  • Will have 75 floors and more than 2,000 sq ft of 'amenity space' for leisure and play areas, a gym and restaurant among other facilities
  • Developers say this will be compensate for lack of outdoor space
  • Tower Hamlets planners expected to give it approval tomorrow

Could this be the answer to London's chronic housing shortage?

Tomorrow, Tower Hamlets council is expected to give the green light for developers to build a 784ft skyscraper on Canary Wharf which is being dubbed a 'town in a tower'.

Over 75 floors, the building will contain 822 homes as well as shops, a gym, a library, play and party areas, a cinema and a roof terrace.

The facilities will be split between 'amenity floors' located on the 27th and and 56th floors.

In their application, developer Chalegrove Properties, argues this will compensate for a lack of outdoor space for residents.

Mace and Skanska set for next London tower jobs
Aaron Morby | Thu 13th June | 8:24

Mace and Skanska are set to sign contracts for the next two skyscraper jobs in London.

Mace is understood to have landed the job to build a 39-floor boutique hotel in London’s Docklands, which should get underway later this year.

Meanwhile, Skanska is understood to have beaten rival bidder Mace for the job to build a 38-storey tower next to the Lloyds Building in the heart of the City of London.

French hotel group Accor is developing the 305-bed luxury hotel at 40 Marsh Wall on the Isle of Dogs, which will rise to 127m.

The building will boast restaurants and a bar on the top floors offering views across London.

London mayor outlines home building vision for next decade

Housing has a key role to play in making sure that London has a secure future as one of the best big cities in the world, according to Mayor Boris Johnson.
He has outlined his agenda for the future in a report called 2020 Vision - The Greatest City on Earth; Ambitions for London, which says that as London’s population will hit 10 million by 2030 it needs 400,000 new homes in the next decade alone.

Advocating the need for stable and continuous investment in housing and infrastructure projects in particular, the Mayor highlighted that the capital now contributes a greater share to the UK’s economic output than any point in its history and its future prosperity, and that of the whole country, is reliant on hardworking Londoners.

• ABP to create state-of-the-art business port aimed initially at Chinese and Asian business
• Estimated 20,000 jobs to be created
• Development to be worth £6bn to the UK economy when complete

The Mayor, Boris Johnson, has announced details of a £1bn deal to transform London’s historic docklands into the capital’s next business district, forging new trade links with China and other economies in the Asia-Pacific region and securing billions of pounds of inward investment in the UK economy.

Owned by the Greater London Authority and situated in the heart of Royal Docks Enterprise Zone, the 35-acre site at Royal Albert Dock is set to be transformed by ABP China (Holding), a successful commercial developer, into a gateway for Asian and Chinese business seeking to establish headquarters in Europe as well as other businesses wanting to set up in the capital.

London towers 'must include public realm'

Tall building conference debates need for towers to include free public space, lest London become ‘fair ground for the rich’

Graham Stirk, co-founder of renowned architecture practice Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners, has warned London runs the risk of becoming a “fairground” for the rich.

Speaking at the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) conference in central London this week, Stirk told delegates that developers and architects had a responsibility to make the capital accessible to everyone.

Stirk said: “If we’re not careful we’ll create a fairground [in central London] where only those that have the money can have a ride.”

He contrasted the practice’s under-construction Leadenhall Building - dubbed the Cheesegrater because of its tapering design - in the Square Mile, which creates a substantial public realm at ground-level by cutting into the base of the building with other towers where you can only “[expensively] dine with a view”.

None of central London’s existing towers set aside space to the non-paying public, although some, including the Gherkin, Heron Tower, Tower 42 and the Shard, offer restaurants or viewing galleries for paying customers.

However, the under-construction Rafael-Vinoly-designed 20 Fenchurch Street - dubbed the Walkie Talkie - will feature a three-storey sky garden open to the public free of charge once completed next year.

The building will boast restaurants and a bar on the top floors offering views across London.

In the city, US insurance giant W R Berkley is expected to sign a contract shortly for a new European headquarters building, which has been designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox, also the architect behind the Heron Tower which was built by Skanska.

KPF’s design resembles an upright scalpel with floor plates varying from 9,000 sq ft to 22,000 sq ft arranged around a side core that optimises floor dimensions and limits solar gain.

The project will also create a 11,000 sq ft public ‘square’ to boost the existing precinct around the Willis Building.

Construction work is expected to start before the end of the year.

Heatherwick’s Garden Bridge could link South Bank to Embankment
Thursday 13 June 2013

Plans have been unveiled for a Thomas Heatherwick-designed pedestrian bridge across the Thames between Victoria Embankment and the South Bank.







image hosted on flickr


The designer behind the stunning Olympic cauldron is planning a giant £60 million floating garden to bridge the Thames.

Thomas Heatherwick’s design would be the first new crossing since the Millennium Bridge opened to the public in 2002 and would create a new route from Covent Garden to the South Bank.

It is being developed after Mr Heatherwick won a Transport for London tender for ideas to improve pedestrian access across the river.

The proposed bridge – to be funded by private sponsorship – could be completed as soon as 2016 and would span the Thames between ITV's London Television Centre and HQS Wellington on the Embankment.
