I still doubt it is going to go above ground level for now.

New 205m proposal for the same area, a mixed use tower designed by 21st architecture at 30 Marshwall. Site is the small building to the left of that tower in the pic above.









A full planning application is expected in the next month or two.

The Google office looks amazing and Sixty London is breathtaking, a perfect, if not cliche', juxtaposition of old and new.

Not very recent, Skanska have been contracted to build the scalpel and demolition of the current building will commence soon in the autumn at some point.

Site investigation has begun in the last couple of days. Demolition should commence soon, and the building will begin rising straight after.

Looks like McGee has the demo contract based on the small sign on the door....

They are building a rather cool building right next to The Old Curiosity shop. A sort of mini Tate extension.
