lol. That's something I'd do. What a skyline!

It's fair to say that the new towers proposed for Waterloo are hideous. Is the middle tower leaning?

New highrise cluster north of the city that seems to include some 200m+ towers.

Massing is on page 35 of this report.

The under construction 165m Broadgate Tower is the white tower to the left of the blue ones. The 2 blue towers directly right of the Broadgate Tower, named Bishops Place (previously Northgate), are due to go into planning this year, and a 2008 start is possible. the whole thing will be phased over ten years.

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" -

Amazing render of the "maybe" London, in french we say "Dubaïesque" (Dubai-like).
The skyline looks like L.A skyline : many clusters.

the good news is that the render of London 2012 isn't just fantasy and there is a good chance many will be built... there are currently 6 of the new towers shown actually under construction, with preparation work including demolition, site clearance and ground preparation on 5 more.
Below check out the cranes..pics show the 2 Pan Peninsula towers, Baltimore Wharf Tower construction site, Arrowhead Quay, the 2 MarshWall towers and Broadgate

Wow great updates. I personally prefer the three clusters of skyscrapers compared to the one cluster shown on the previous page. I think it'll suit London much better and will give it much more of a big city feel. In the future these clusters will probably merge into one big one anyway which will still look good given the variety in architectural styles.

5, 20 & 25 Churchill Place, 15 Canada Square and 30 North Colonnade

Here's a picture by Jef which shows the various new midrises under construction in Canary Wharf. The area is becoming quite dense. Heights range from 50-70m:

This was posted by SELondoner in the UK forum. It shows Canary Wharf in the mid-1980s and again in 2015 -

To be honest, I seriously doubt it will get built. You can just guarantee there'll be the usual army of NIMBY's, heritage groups, journalists, politicians and other morons who say it's "too tall" and nothing but "developer's ego". It will either be cancelled, or we'll get a completely dumbed-down version that's fatter, less iconic and barely reaches 100m.

Very good news as it means the threat that a reinvigorated Heritage lobby has been defeated & we should now hopefully see more plans for city towers emerge & should hopefully shut up English Heritage for good, at least in the city of London.

Land Secs wins walkie talkie green light

11:26 | 10.07.07

Land Securities has won permission for its 39 storey ‘walkie talkie’ tower at 20 Fenchurch Street in the City of London.

By Mark Jansen

Secretary of state Hazel Blears ruled yesterday that the scheme, designed by Rafael Vinoly, complies with the local development plan and national planning policies, including guidance on tall buildings published by English Heritage and the architecture watchdog CABE.

The decision follows a three-week planning inquiry held in March. The secretary of state backed the conclusion of planning inspector Ken Barton, who ruled that views of St Pauls Cathedral would be preserved and there would be no significant impact on the Tower of London World Heritage Site.

Commenting on the controversial design, the inspector said, ‘the proposed tower would add interest to the skyline.’

Further documents released from Lewisham Council on the redevelopment of the town centre (more detailed designs are revealed)

It looks great IMO.

Planning permission has been won for a residential led, mixed-use development at Bow Common Lane, East London, following extensive consultation and negotiations with planners. The development comprises 157 units (of which 37% will be affordable housing) and 868 sq m commercial space. It will range from three to 12 storeys, in two blocks arranged either side of a central, innovatively landscaped, south-facing courtyard. The tower will benefit from views across Bartlett Park (also scheduled for major improvement and expansion), and the amenity space that opens onto the canal-side will allow for the future opening of the towpath, to promote links between nearby green spaces. At the rear of the courtyard is a raised podium deck, which is accessed at first-floor level and forms an additional landscaped area for residents, incorporating a children’s play area.

Wallbrook Square received planning permission today. Current buildings will be vacant in the next couple of months & will then be demolished.
