The Diamond tower is amazing. It has that North American feel to it and is going to look great in Canary Wharf.

I love how the Parliament House is sticking out from the side of the road. Looking down the street. Like it's some kind of drug dealer scoping out its next sale.

Hey kids. Want some politics? Right this way, I got everythin' you need.

These 2 towers have been called in by Boris which seem to suggest they will now be approved. Around 150 & 130m.

Recently stumbled upon Will Pearson's photography, his Gigapixel and High Resolution photos of London are breathtaking.

These are some of my favourites, (Not able to post the pictures only links to the photos. Also view in full screen mode and try and spot intricate details.)

London from the South
01, September, 2009

London from the South

London cityscape panorama with views from the south of the city across to the Isle of Dogs, Canary Wharf and Greenwich with the O2 Arena (Millennium Dome) visible. The construction of the new Pan Peninsula Towers is almost complete.

Sundown over Holborn
17, March, 2011

Sundown over Holborn

This London cityscape includes the following landmarks: Shard London Bridge; Strata Tower; Guy’s Hospital Tower; 33 St Mary Axe (The Gherkin); Tower 42; the Heron Tower; King’s Reach Tower; the Barbican; Canary Wharf; the Tate Modern; the London Eye; the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben.

Shard View at Night Panorama
08, September, 2011

Shard View at Night Panorama

I captured this panorama of the London skyline at night from the Shard at around the 35th floor, whilst the building was still under construction. The Shard’s height has given me the opportunity to show the London cityscape from a new angle, looking down on the Thames as it snakes through the city from London Bridge past Southwark Bridge, Millennium Bridge and on towards Blackfriars Bridge.

Hyde Park Dusk
(One of my favourites Banner Material.)
04, October, 2011

Hyde Park Dusk

Aerial London panorama by Hyde Park with views of the Serpentine, Albert Hall, Battersea Power Station, London Eye, the BT Tower, The Shard with the City of London and Canary Wharf in the distance.

Nautical Twilight, City
(Zoom in to see people in their offices.)
01, November, 2011

Nautical Twilight, City

Panoramic London cityscape at twilight with views over the City of London. The Shard lit up though still under construction can be seen in the far right of the image, with familiar buildings the Gherkin (St Mary Axe), Tower 42 and the Heron Tower in the City of London to the left. The image is available for licence at ultra high resolution.

Nautical twilight is the part of twilight where the horizon becomes indistinct as the sun has dropped 12 degrees below the horizon line. At this point of the evening, sailors can no longer use the horizon to navigate by.

London In Detail
(One of my favourites Banner Material.)
05, January, 2012

London In Detail

In this panorama you can view The Shard under construction, with Canary Wharf seemingly just behind it. The level of resolution allows you to zoom in and see an incredible level of detail. Please click the ‘Fullscreen’ button for the best viewing experience and you can further explore the image to find many more of London’s famous buildings, among them the London Eye, Big Ben, MI6 Building, St Paul’s Cathedral and Centre Point.

View From The South Bank
30, January, 2012

View From The South Bank

Panoramic view form the South Bank London looking out onto Canary Wharf, City of London, The Shard, St Pauls Cathedral, The Olympic Village 2012. This is a very high resolution panorama, you can zoom in to see details and further explore London’s landmark buildings, including Tower 42, 30 St Mary Axe, The Barbican, Heron Tower and Guy’s Tower.

Gigapixel 360 Panorama from the Shard
(Complete 360* from The Shard)
07, June, 2012

Gigapixel 360 Panorama from the Shard

High resolution 360 interactive panorama shot from the crane at the top of the Shard, London Bridge. The Shard is the tallest building in the European Union and the viewing gallery will open to the public in 2013. Most of London and beyond is visible in this Gigapixel image, from the skyscrapers of the City of London and Canary Wharf, the many bridges crossing the River Thames to the distant arch of Wembley Stadium.

London Stilled in Evening
(Lovely brick work of the Tate Modern, look at the people on the Millennium Bridge)
11, July, 2012

London Stilled in Evening

London’s brief stillness in the minutes after rush hour has ended before the evening’s activity truly begins. The panorama takes in most of London’s major landmarks from The Shard to Canary Wharf, The City of London with St Paul’s Cathedral, with the Thames dividing the city and the Tate Tower bisecting the image.

Greenwich View Twilight
(My personal favourite.)
04, January, 2013

Greenwich View Twilight

A Twilight gigapixel panorama shot from Greenwich looking towards Canary Wharf with the City of London in the distance. The River Thames flows past the Millennium Dome (the O2) with the many skyscrapers of Canary Wharf, including one Canada Square, towering above the river. Further into the distance you can see the iconic structures of the City including the Gherkin and Tower 42 and also the Shard can be seen just appearing above the skyline of Canary Wharf.

Green light for Unite’s £93m London student scheme



Student accommodation developer Unite has secured planning approval for a £93m scheme in Islington, London. The 260,000 sq ft development will include around 900 beds, and feature commercial units and community space on the ground floor.

It will include a mixture of shared flats and self-contained studios, in addition to common areas, study rooms and a courtyard.

Unite acquired the 1.4 acre site on Holloway Road from London Metropolitan University in 2013.

It will be developed by the London Student Accommodation Vehicle, Unite’s 50:50 joint venture with GIC Real Estate, with a development value of £93m.

Unite’s managing director of property Richard Simpson said: “There is a significant shortfall of student accommodation in London which puts pressure on the residential housing market.

“This new development will not only help alleviate that, but will also contribute to the regeneration of one of London’s oldest boroughs and represents an important milestone in our development strategy.”

The project is due for completion in summer 2016.
