The plans for London Dock were revealed a few months ago.

With an unprecedented height of 250 metres for a wholly residential building in western Europe, Foster + Partners design for South Quay Plaza has raised more than a few eyebrows.

The site, which is sandwich directly between Heron Quays and Pan Peninsula contains two of the earliest buildings built for the Docklands regeneration in the mid 80s. Approaching thirty years in age these buildings are now ending their lives and so redevelopment is on the mind of Berkeley Homes who are hot off their success at St George Wharf which includes London's first residential skyscraper.

Driving the height is in part the fact that the project is situated almost in the very centre of the Isle of Dogs, a point that finally challenges the primacy that One Canada Square has held over the area for so long finally spreading the cluster independently of Canary Wharf, rather than having its head bowed to that high-rise office park. It also has the good fortune of not being in the viewing corridor from the World Heritage Site in Greenwich, and is below the Civil Aviation Authority height limit.

The project is massed so that it is has the maximum amount of open space between neighbouring buildings. The building is also arranged so that it will have no directly north facing units, and has presumably been masterplanned to fit in the with the future development of South Quay 3 which is not shown on the plans.

It has. I'm not sure I'm very happy with this one though. Altough I love every skyscraper addition to London, and it's height is more than enough for London's standards, is it the right building to be the pinnacle of CW? oh If only 1 Canada square was taller!!

The water feature at the Blackheath Quarter looks pretty good, anyone know if it's part of an existing waterway?

Baltimore is one hell of sexy Tower it will bring much needed change of Silhouette to the rather boxy Canary Wharf.

CW should stay mainly boxy but it's always good to break the monotony.

Mayor’s office approves £200m London energy plant
Thu 22nd August
London’s mayor has given waste specialist company Viridor permission to build a £200m incinerator and waste recovery plant in south London.

The last remaining hurdle is now central Government approval before contractors Lagan and French specialist CNIM can start building the energy recovery facility at Beddington Lane in Sutton.

They will build two 106,500 tonne-a-year capacity mechanical biological treatment facilities, and one energy-from-waste plant with combined heat and power, also with a 106,500 tonne-a-year capacity.

The incinerator would burn waste from the boroughs of Croydon, Kingston upon Thames, Merton and Sutton, diverting about 95% of waste away from landfill.

Willmott wins £14m South London hotel

Willmott Dixon has won the main contract to build a £14m for Brentford Hotels in Hounslow, south London, Construction News has learned.

The project will include construction of the hotel, access roads, enabling and infrastructure work, as well as sewer systems and landscaping.

Edmund Shipway are project managing the work, which has commenced on site and which is due to complete in December 2014.

Willmott Dixon has so far won around £60m in hotel and leisure work in 2013.

This figure brings the sector up to Willmott’s fourth most lucrative, after education, health, and private housing.

I once saw a list of restaurants (from Time Out I think) based in East London and it included places around King's Cross.
