This is basically like the Shenfield branch of Crossrail 1, taking over the existing national rail tracks/stations. Crossrail 2 will take over the 'stoppers' and they will build two new tracks alongside for fast services beyond Cheshunt/Hertford. So I think it's the existing stations Northumberland Park, Angel Road etc

ooh, I hadn't twigged that. interesting. Daniel Levy, being the man that he is, will be pleased when it's an approved & funded policy, and not a forumer's best guess at filling in the details of TfL's best guess which is a roundabout way of saying, I think what I said is the current general idea, but I might be wrong, and even if I'm right that might still change

^ Wow, awesome project. The brickwork on the taller towers reminds me of this proposal for Chicago:

What is the new construction at the corner of Holywell ln and Curtain Rd in Shoreditch? I see construction there in google maps, but haven't been to that corner of London.

My memory says a hotel is being built. I go past the site almost every day so I feel I ought to know but I don't have time right now to fish out something that will make reference to what's going on there.

It would be great to have a tower or two fill in the gap between the future towers in Shoreditch and The City! It would really add to the impact of the overall skyline!

If my memory serves me correctly that area (between Heron Tower and Broadgate Tower) is towerless (and will stay towerless) because it's the backdrop to St Paul's from King Henry's Mound
