Someone else would fill the vacuum

I hope they waste no time in implementing Crossrail 2 once Crossrail is complete.

Seriously, what is the point of these kind of questions? You have been checking the forum every single day of your life since years, discussing every single new project coming out in London and even posting updates of such projects. Additionally, you know there are some people over here who update this section every hour, seven days a week. So, if you haven't seen already 30 times the designs of such towers and comment 20 times on them, it means there ARE NOT designs yet. As easy as that! It's like calling The Sun to ask if the queen died in the last few days, and if so, if they forgot to report about it.

The 10 Year Award will be presented at the The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat 12th Annual Awards Ceremony on November 7, at the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago, United States. “The Gherkin changed the landscape with respect to what’s possible,” said juror Antony Wood, CTBUH Executive Director. “It turned the tide in an environment that was anti-tall-building.”

Hilarious.

But anyway, the new wood wharf framework , on first inspection doesnt look half as interesting as the original. What's happened to all those little islands? they would have made a really memorable place but this just looks like more boring samey canary wharf blandness. Correct me if you think I'm wrong
