I was thinking the same thing just the other day! In fact why don't they recognise a market for these things and produce scale models?

The pinnacle's redesign, has to be iconic and become London's next landmark. Plus become a tourist attraction like the gherkin has become, to be a success in my opinion.

The bad habit of some to buy homes in expensive places for sheer investment, and then just leave them empty, needs to come to a halt. Great push here London:

London council plans to fine 'buy-to-leave' investors

Islington seeks to 'end the scandal of new homes being wasted' by investors who buy properties and then leave them empty


"Buy-to-leave" investors could be fined up to £60,000 in an assault on empty housing being considered by a London council.

The charge on the growing phenomenon of vacant homes in high-value areas, exemplified this year by the scandal of empty mansions on the Bishop's Avenue in north London, has been proposed by Islington council. Close to 300 of homes built in the area since 2008 still have no one on the electoral roll, which the council says may mean they are vacant.

As always many thanks for the updates SE7.
I'd say Meridian Gate is closer to how One Tower Bridge should have been.

Absolutely stunning. I can't wait to see this rise. Definitely one of my favourite designs.

As always, thank you SE9.

I looked on Google Maps and it looks to be the Elephant & Castle Station, but I'm provably wrong.

Elephant & Castle station. The rendered glazed concourse has long been part of the Elephant & Castle regeneration plans.
