Unusual Concept Tower for London:

This Conceptual Skyscraper Rises Like A Giant Coil


Link: http://io9.com/this-conceptual-skysc...oil-1611037376

A very Unsual Concept Design for London whereby the construction method is a little unorthodox.

The concept and idea behind it seems brilliant - especially in terms of natural light. But the design is not so good...

Let me know what you guys think!

Buildings under 20 floors except very few won't survive the changing of our universe, we should save the resources for buildings above 20 floors that'll be the new order.

Plenty places in London where a building under 20 storeys will suffice.

Gherkin skyscraper put up for sale

London's Gherkin skyscraper has been put up for sale, with interest expected from Chinese, other Asian, and US buyers, estate agency Savills has said.

The City of London tower is expected to fetch offers in the region of £650m, the firm said.

Savills and Deloitte Real Estate have been jointly instructed to sell 30 St Mary Axe, which is the building's formal title.

The skyscraper was placed in receivership in April.

The "Docklands" extend westward as far as Tower Bridge, and some may consider that the term could extend up to London Bridge. All along both sides of the river as far as London Bridge were docks which were functioning up till 1968 when the closures began.
