@Infinite Jest: Imho, London shouldn't care all too much for starchitects. If they do better stuff than others on the same plot, bring 'em on - but if not, forget about them. Starchitects aren't ruling the freaking universe. Names are hollow (and often overpriced), quality counts.

I've seen really crappy buildings by starchitects and phenomenal ones by unknown designers. London gets a lot of high quality "no name" designs, that actually put most places in the world to shame, including a great portion of NYC (minus most of Midtown, admittedly).
Apologies , I have made a note and will be more considerate in the future.

Ah.

Sounds like you've got the earlier, 1960's version of SSC......before the internet got colour.

The only thing I'd change about King's Cross is the height of some residential elements.

Overall an exemplary development.

It's been great this month. No hold-ups to construction due to adverse weather conditions this April.

Biggest immediate risk is of uncertainty or panic pervading due to an upcoming EU referendum, particularly if it's a close fought one. That's of course dependent on events in May.

Quintain hires Westfield man to lead Wembley Park

Quintain Estates & Development has appointed Matthew Slade as managing director of its Wembley Park development.

Slade joins from Westfield Corporation, where he opened the Stratford City development and acted as general manager during the 2012 Olympics.

Quintain said the new role at Wembley Park would involve overseeing the transformation of the area into a “world-class retail and leisure desination”.

Wembley Park’s footprint is adjacent to Wembley Stadium and covers the SSE Arena, hotels, and the London Designer Outlet. It is earmarked for the construction of 5,000 homes.

Quintain chief operating officer James Saunders said he expected Slade to bring an “overarching focus to the operation and performance” to the development and “enhance the location’s emerging identity as leisure destination”.

Laing O'Rourke cements £40m 250 City Road Tower win

Firms expanded arm confirmed for concrete package on Berkeley’s 250 City Road scheme

Laing O’Rourke’s Expanded arm has been confirmed for the £40m concrete package on Berkeley’s 250 City Road towers

Designed by Foster + Partners, the project has been named City Forum and consists of 995 homes in two towers at 42-stories and 36-stories high, and forms part of a new cluster of high-rise residential and mixed-use towers on the northern fringe of the City and the borough of Islington.

Berkeley won planning from Islington Council for the towers in April 2014 under condition it started within two years of gaining consent for the scheme.
