Not a bad looking tower, in a cursory way, a sort of latter day Centrepoint-Tour Montparnasse fusion.

London office building to hit 10-year high in 2014

Next year will see the largest amount of office space constructed in central London for a decade, a new report has said.

Deloitte Real Estate’s winter 2013 London Crane Survey said 6.6m sq ft of office space will complete next year in the capital’s main markets, such as the City and West End, and 2m sq ft of this space has already been let.

The report said there had been marked increased in occupiers pre-letting offices under construction. Only a third of space built during Q3 and Q3 2013 was available to let, whereas nearly three-quarters of new central London office space was unlet when completed a year earlier.

The study predicted demand for space would push up rents and therefore entice developers to begin new office schemes in the next six to 12 months.

The volume of London office space under construction fell by 1 per cent to 9.7m sq ft during Q2 and Q3 compared with Deloitte’s previous report published in summer 2013.

However, the amount of space completed was the highest for three years at 2.6m sq ft and 28 new schemes were started in the six-month period since the previous survey.

Good to see many quality buildings are going up in London and IMHO London would have Europe's untouchable skyline if all of it's towers were built at a dedicated location.

That's the beauty with future London. Alongside all the clusters in one view it will have 4 or 5 top skylines on their own. Canary wharf for me is the one to watch. Unbelievable amount of proposals for a European city.

I absolutely love that we have many clusters that will all get bigger! City and CW being the biggest and having loads of proposals (esp CW), many (hopefully most) of which will become reality. All skyscrapers in one area would be a serious mistake that London has fortunately avoided! London has always been unique, and continues to be so.

Having multiple nodes is definitely the preferable path of development in London.
