I've updated all the info at the start of this thread. Should be fully up-to-date now.

Its so quiet here...

Greenwich Peninsula

Bellway Homes, one of the UK’s top four housebuilders, has just received planning permission to build 229 homes at Greenwich Peninsula, London’s largest single regeneration project. These homes represent the first residential phase in the development of 80 hectares of Greenwich Peninsula over the next 15 years. Work at the site should start late 2007 with residents moving in towards the end of 2009. The £5 billion Greenwich Peninsula regeneration scheme – creating a new riverside community for London - is being led by joint venture partners Lend Lease and Quintain Estates and Development PLC, working with English Partnerships, the UK Government’s national regeneration agency.

This is something I've been working on for the last few days, and which hopefully illustrates the sheer scale
of transformation occuring across London.

The pano itself was taken from a block of flats in Forest Hill. It was publicly accessible and I was able to reach
the 7th floor. Every cluster can be seen here - from Battersea to Lambeth, Westminster, Elephant & Castle,
Southwark, The City, right the way through to Greenwich, Canary Wharf and the Docklands.

I used Google Earth to get some of the heights and locations accurate. There are probably some midrises and
smaller towers I've left off, but the important ones are all there. More than 50% of what you see here either
has planning permission, or is undergoing demolition/construction work.

To be honest, it's more like 2015 than 2012... I've included things like the Broadgate Centre expansion,
Bishopsgate Goodsyard, Heron Quays West, Vauxhall Bondway, etc. which are longer term developments.
Anyway, this is the largest rendering I've ever done. Hope you like it.

Here's a "before and after" -




2007








2012

Sorry, I couldn't dissagree with you more. Modern architecture shouldn't reserve itself to look old, just to fit in with other old buildings. Personlly, I think this fits in perfectly in that part of London.

Your statement reminds me of what some old lady said on a recent BBC doco on London "People only come to London to see the historical buildings, not any of this modern rubbish". What a load of crap. I come to London to see London - the city it is today. Beautiful historical buildings, cutting edge modern ones, the great citylife and vibe, the shopping, the people, and a few drinks as well.

London is a living, evolving city. Please don't try and hold it back because you believe modern constructions should look old to fit into what's next to them.

Thanks. That's a cluster of residential towers at Vauxhall, about a half-mile south of Big Ben and the London Eye. It's a controversial location, but St George's Wharf (the tallest of the group) has received planning approval and is expected to be under construction in 2008.

Anyway, here's the annotated version -

UNESCO has decided not to place the Tower of London and Westminster World Heritage Sites on its 'endangered' list, but has asked for a further report next year -

If you combined all the projects into a single cluster, it would look like this -
