[QUOTE=SE9;114158355]10 Bank Street | Canary Wharf E14

[SIZE="1"]London forum thread: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=459295


10 Bank Street will look a bit similar to this building on the left. Are they both designed by the same architect?

My argument is that no city can claim to be the most influent one in an area as large and diverse as a continent.

And the World's best new Skyscraper is...

The Shard!

Link: http://edition.cnn.com/2014/05/19/tr...scraper-award/

Quote:
London's The Shard has taken top honors in the annual Skyscraper Award from Hamburg-based building and construction data company Emporis. The awards, announced annually since 2000, are chosen by an "international jury of architecture experts" who select nominated buildings completed in the last year and are at least 100 meters tall, according to "aesthetic and functional design criteria," an Emporis spokesperson said in a statement.

"Construction of The Shard was complicated by the particularly tight site and therefore needed innovative planning," said Emporis.
"This makes the result all the more impressive: a skyscraper that is recognized immediately and which is already considered London's new emblem."

"The Shard's design features angled-glass facade panels that result in changing reflected light patterns. Its facade is double-skinned and ventilated, reducing solar gain while maximizing light intake. The winter gardens, which the skyscraper provides instead of expensive corner offices, benefit from the building's natural ventilation system.
Architects: Renzo Piano Building Workshop, Adamson Associates International"
Great News for The Shard and London enthusiasts alike.

I remember a few months ago, if I'm not mistaken, nothing was U/C in CW-Blackwall but theres quite a lot U/C there at the moment and so much more to start very soon, I think it's safe to say that the area is booming again!

Just at the top of my head:
U/C:
Providence tower
Horizons
Baltimore Tower

Preparation works:
Diamond Tower
10 Bank street
Dollay Bay Tower

There's also London City Island and Greenwich pensinsula nearby and so much more expected to start construction soon (Wood Wharf first and foremost). Very exciting times for CW!

And this morning, Ballymore announced that they're seeking a JV partner to develop Arrowhead Quay (twin 55 & 50 storey residential towers) at Canary Wharf.

What did I say? - greatest skyscraper of the 21st century.

Shame about Strata.
