of particular interest is the way mock georgian is being demolished for a more refined, contemporary mock georgian. timeless, and shows architecture in London both progressing through this refinement, but perhaps regressing through continuing to imitate a classic style. just food for thought.

Novotel in Canary Wharf is progressing stupidly fast!

All those developments in Shoreditch are just gorgeous, I love them. To me personally, that's such an important part of London and these developments are just helping the area.

Great stuff SE9.

The top of this design sort of reminds me of 'The Cube' building in Birmingham.

Something tells me you already know.. but you would like it posted in here again so that you can take pleasure in deriding London and its planning processes. But if you must know, it is these few buildings.. the only real loss is the facade of the portland stone building.. the rest, good riddance.

It is a shame that this building is being lost, I wish it was 125 Fenchurch Street being demolished for this new office building. Does anyone know if there is anything planned for 125 Fenchurch? .
