Those views from the Baltimore tower looks CRAZY! Were those pictures taken by 'Outlaw Photographers' by any chance?


And yes, the Old & New comparison on the Lexicon and Flatiron building is brilliant and quite accurate! Looking amazing.


I'd love to visit that new Exhbition bit of The Leadenhall Building... is it just that area or does it go up/into the main building?

The Baltimore Tower photos were taken by folks from http://underover.in/

The Leadenhall Building exhibition is on the ground floor plaza.

Official website: https://www.bartlett.ucl.ac.uk/archi...s-house-design



Project facts
  • Address: 22 Gordon Street, London WC1

  • Floors: 6

Planning permission for a new school of architecture at UCL
Deloitte Real Estate
September 2014


Deloitte Real Estate has secured planning permission for the £30 million redevelopment of Wates House. The Hawkins\Brown-designed scheme will consolidate the Bartlett School of Architecture into a single building and provide modern workshop and studio spaces for the School with a permanent exhibition space and Faculty hub at ground floor.

The development is expected to start on site later this year and be completed in September 2016, for opening at the start of the 2016/17 academic year.

Michael Meadows, planner at Deloitte Real Estate, said: “The development will double the amount of teaching and research space available for the Bartlett School of Architecture. This is an excellent result for UCL and testament to the quality of the design and the vision of the School, to work with and respond to the constraints of the Bloomsbury Conservation Area and neighbouring listed buildings.”

Deloitte Real Estate provided planning and neighbourly matters advice to UCL.

Apparently Boris Island airport has been rejected. I wonder how bad the noise pollution is in Heathrow.

I mean, Boris Island was crazy. But as the article on BBC says, the only other alternatives are expanding Heathrow or Gatwick. Good luck getting a third runway passed, let alone an expansion across the board.

A pared back, two runway estuary plan should have been submitted, with allowable future expansions. 90bn upfront was never going to get anywhere, but the alternatives are worse.

There's well over a dozen buildings in the photo. The one under construction is Providence Tower.

Small suggestion to your posts SE9 - would it be possible to include a small map of London, with the development marked in it for quicker identification of location? I see that you provide postcodes and areas, but being a non-Londoner, sometimes I have to use Gmaps to find where they are going to be.

But otherwise, the posts are incredible

It'd be too cumbersome.

For those discussing the London Bridge station rebuilt this extensive video shows what exactly they are doing.

Piano submits plans for Shard’s little sister
2 September, 2014 | By Laura Mark


Renzo Piano Building Workshop has submitted plans for a 27-storey residential tower next to The Shard

The tower, which standing at 100m-tall is a third of the height of The Shard, steps back towards the south to maintain views of the practice’s Stirling Prize-shortlisted skyscraper.

The scheme which contains 26 floors of apartments will also include roof gardens, retail spaces and public realm.

On the sixteenth floor a 300m² south facing roof garden will act as a meeting point for residents while also containing a children’s play area.

Located between The Shard and the practice’s recently completed 18-storey Place office building, the tower will replace the existing buildings of 21-27 St Thomas Street and Feilden House, and 28-30 London Bridge.

At concourse level – 7m above the street - a new public space will connect the building to its Piano-designed neighbours.

The scheme’s developer, Sellar, had previously proposed a three tower residential scheme to the east of the Shard near Bermondsey Street, designed by Herzog and de Meuron, which was nicknamed the Shardettes. But the plans were sent back to the drawing board when high-rise development policy for the area was changed.
