The Chelsea Waterfront is one of the projects that are most interesting to me in London along with the Nine Elms towers, the Greenwich Peninsula small towers and the Blossom Street rebuilds that I actually think are an improvement.

Do you mean this one (dubbed Gotham City) for Leadenhall Street?

I was about to answer the gentleman with the same picture! This a great design. I haven't heard any news on it in a while though?

I dislike this as half of it is a ground scraper and the tall half hides the gherkin from the north side... i think? If it was taller at least it would resemble the rockefeller in New york.

I'd like to see more renders, especially looking from ground-level Southbank... but I doubt a render will come out like that. And yes, it definitely echoes an Art Deco style, which isn't a bad thing imo

Earls Court Regeneration Absolutely gorgeous.

Weird question: does anyone know how many apartments are U/C in Inner London at the moment? It seems as though there's going to be a population explosion.

The first bit of cladding at the new U.S. Embassy on nine elms lane is now visible.

SE9 will probably have a better answer, but yeah, there's going to be a population explosion / sort of already is.

http://www.standard.co.uk/news/londo...s-9451892.html

Trouble is it's not a case of X apartments U/C meaning the population will grow by X. It's going to grow regardless with people living illegal in sheds and the like if it comes to it. Again, already happening.

Not to drag this thread into election politics again (please!) but strategy documents suggest we need 62,000 new homes per year, Boris' official target is a more modest 42,000 new homes per year, while the actual output in reality last year was 16,8000. So you can see there is an enormous shortfall. However many it looks like are U/C right now (and it does feel like loads) it's small change compared to what's needed!

You are right to say that we are not building enough homes. We definitely aren't by miles. The main reason of this is because of stupid planning laws and the simple fact, the government can't afford any major house building. The best solution to this would probably be tax breaks for brownfield sights that dot London and much of the UK along with removal of many stupid planning laws. Once that has been done the government will then have to sort out its finances before going on any major house building program......
