Kicking up a stink over London’s new super sewer

On the one hand it is something to be engaged with on a strictly private basis, but on the other a source of great entertainment (or ‘the focus of an entire culture’, to quote Baron von Richthofen in Blackadder).

But in London it is absolutely crucial we talk about it in a serious way because if we don’t we are heading for an unholy mess, in an all too literal sense.

We have a dirty secret in this city - a story that we shy away from telling – and that is where our effluent goes.

When it rains, the overflows gush into the river leaving human waste floating along our iconic landscape. This happens on a near-weekly basis and it’s going to get worse.

Today the equivalent volume of eight billion lavatory flushes pollute the tidal section of the river in London every year.

As London continues to grow, an additional 600,000 properties will need to be built by 2030, and each of those homes will need at least one loo.

The system we have currently does not have the capacity to cope with the existing population, let alone support a growing city. It was built in the 1850s to support four million people and the London population now numbers around 8.3m and growing fast.

This is why it is so important the government has granted planning permission for a £4bn London super sewer – the Thames Tideway Tunnel (TTT).

Construction competition: Lodha plans £3bn push into London property



UK housebuilders could face aggressive competition in London from the Indian developer Lodha Group, which is planning a £3bn push into property in the capital, according to the Financial Times.

India's biggest housing developer, which last year bought the former Canadian high commission building in Mayfair for £306m, wants to develop properties ranging from mid-market to super-prime. "We want to be among the top two developers in London in the next five years," Abhishek Lodha, managing director, told the FT.

"Our idea is to make significant investments, which will come out of the cash flows we are generating here in Mumbai," Lodha said, outlining plans to spend £1.8bn on assets and a further £1.2bn on construction.

The group is building the world's tallest residential tower in its home city of Mumbai and recently launched a project there to build a 75-storey tower in partnership with Donald Trump. Founded in 1980 by Lodha's father, the family-controlled business earned revenues of 85bn rupees ($1.4bn) over the past financial year, mostly from sales in India's financial capital. As well as interest from property groups, wealthy Indian buyers in London have spent more than £1bn on luxury property since the beginning of last year, according to the estate agents Knight Frank.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but there are similar towers in London, so it actually should fit in perfectly. I guess the white color is what makes it similar to Miami - they are surely overusing the brightness slider there.

I know not every building in a city like london can have inspiring architecture but dont you think it does london a great disservice to build so much of the same boring "london venacular"? I mean blackwall reach , east india dock, lewisham gateway I can think of countless others that are just plain old blocks. Surely it must be of some concern to the skyscraper and architecture lovers of london.
