Yes, Skygardens is missing, so is 12-20 Wyvil Road, and the NCGM development isn't (all) on there either as far as I can see.

@Infinite Jest - I'm just telling myself that the top quality architects are reserved for the buildings that will replace St George Wharf when they knock it down really soon any day now in fact and replace it with absolutely anything, I don't even care, just make it go away, pleeeeease.

I may be slightly kidding myself on this one... :P

There isn't a single outstanding design in the cluster. There isn't even a single top-drawer architect working on any of the towers.

It's quite worrying in my view. If the developers aren't willing to spend the money of world-class architects, then they're not going to spend the money on ensuring the area really has character, with quality streetscapes and the kind features and amenities that actually make a place a place, rather than the kind of soulless manufacture environment which is the norm for big developers like Berkely / St George / St James.
I agree with you totally, the area is really lacking in something that really acts as the centre of the development. However the developers are probably betting that simply because it is a massive cluster of skyscrapers in London (something highly unusual in London apart from Canary Wharf and the City) that in itself will be enough to draw customers to the area. Also since most of their buyers are probably extremely rich foreigners who simply want a high profile house in London, they most likely don't give two sh**s about the fact their apartment is in an area without a truly beautiful building.

Thanks for the updates, much appreciated no matter who is doing it!!!

As for Nine Elms i think it looks good, its just fine for london to have a spare cluster with no standout buildings in it afterall there are two other clusters not to mention a few thousand years worth of other exceptional buildings. As usual London has a bit of everything

I agree with the sentiment that 9 elms is looking worryingly bland. River light is an exception I guess and some of the buildings will be better than others. I'm kind of over tricksy towers. If the public realm is well done it won't be too much of a problem, but will it be well done? I posted at length in the appropriate thread on the UK forum about this drawing comparisons with Argents lead at Kings Cross, and I fear it won't happen.

As for Gehry, I'm afraid that nothing about his work has impressed me for years. The ultimate one trick pony.
