I'm really disappointed with how the Providence facade turns out. I was expecting some smooth metallic looks. That was one I held high stakes for, not anymore. Meh.

The night lighting in the render might be a bit misleading.

It's a classic case of showoff-render that doesn't hold a candle to reality. Might still look alright when lit-up, though.

Yes, that what I was thinking. This is the only render I've ever seen, I think.

The render shows the southern face (facing the river). The photos show the northern face (facing the road). Helps to assess like-with-like.

What with Imperial West, the Westfield expansion and the redevelopment of the old BBC site, those of us who live in Shepherds Bush / White City will see some serious change in the coming years.

Great news with 1 Bank Street. Another nice filler...


I am still dissapointed that we are coming so close to 2015 and still not news with The Pinnacle!

I didn't miss out on that one. You're welcome to show a photo of the southern facades of the Providence Tower, I haven't seen such. Or you could show renders of the northern side, if there are any.

It's hard to take a photo of the other side unless you're on the river ATM.

Me too, that building looked as though it was gonna be a center piece for the City of London. It looked really beautiful. If a replacement building is proposed I hope it's just as inspiring because of the key locations.

I just don't understand why that's the only render available for such a big project.

The google-fu of some forumers here is appalling. Renders I found in about 2 seconds:

[IMG]http://i16.************/6finnlt.jpg[/IMG]

Larger version here: http://ahpv0-1.estateweb.com/assets/...ce%20Tower.jpg

[IMG]http://i14.************/2rwlt02.jpg[/IMG]



[IMG]http://i15.************/4kcnel0.jpg[/IMG]

Or you could just click the link to the providence tower thread which SE9 provided, where you will find most of these renders, and whole bunch more. Better yet, you could watch the marketing video on the providence tower web page, which SE9 also provided for you.
