Here's something a bit different for you. Instead of an update on one project, a look at the density of projects in the Aldgate / Whitechapel area.


Aldgate by stevekeiretsu, on Flickr



Green = recently completed
Purple = proposed
Red = under construction

1. One Commercial Street
2. Aldgate Tower
3. Whitechapel Square
4. Aldgate Place
5. 15 Minories & 62 Aldgate High Street
6. 27 Commercial Road
7. Altitude
8. 60 Commercial Road
9. 24-26 Minories
10. Goodman's Fields

Good to see some activity (at last) at the Atlas site.

An 'Atlas' tower on City Road and an 'Atlas' tower in Vauxhall, they should do battle for the name!

Commercial property investment activity in Q1 2015 was the second highest on record. The City and fringes of central London (Shoreditch, Aldgate, South Bank etc) enjoyed the best growth, with the West End slowest.

Investor appetite for the city, a driver for many of the projects featured here, stays flat year-on-year:

Maybe that base is needed for structural integrity. The could have indeed made it fit better with the arches, though.

It's quite obvious that the Crossrail Place designers at Foster had some love and affection for Germany!

A fantastic station btw. One of the best contemporary ones in the world now.

Great info on London's investment SE9. I hope the City keeps up the momentum! Let's hope the Bishopsgate Tower gets a major tenant... any news on this?

The call for better timeless architecture and more classical quality in London doesn't remain unheard!

Audley Square House | Mayfair

Architect: Robert A.M. Stern (RAMSA)

London forum thread: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1816554



The current "eye candy" in place (a 60s car park):



Source: http://www.archdaily.com/620477/robe...pensive-flats/
http://therealdeal.com/blog/tag/robert-a-m-stern/

This view is prevailing more:
As BD Online reports, Caudwell abandoned an already approved £300 million Foster + Partners scheme in favor of Stern’s neo-classical design, saying he chose the New York-based architect for his “ability to design high-quality buildings that do not stand apart from their surroundings but rather fit in comfortably amongst their neighbors.”

“We have opted for quality over quantity,” said Richard Bosson of Caudwell Properties. “We will likely sacrifice a bit of square footage in favor of creating the best quality flats. We have a great site and are determined to make this work. We are confident we can create a beautiful and timeless luxury building.”

interesting that stern's proposal involved destroying an actual historic townhouse. nonetheless, i think of stern as the successor to classical architecture, picking up where it generally speaking left off as the 40s began.

It looks to me that Nine Elms is going to be another cluster, with St Georges Tower alrady there and the new Nine Elms buildings & the Sky Gardens to be built it will look amazing!

Excellent news erbse, thanks! I love this design and I'm glad they went with this rather than the Foster + Partners one.

The company's statement is completely accurate. I'm glad scheme's like this exist.

I completely oppose that Croydon scheme now I know what's there at the moment. What a shocking 60s onspired pile of crap this proposal is.

Was looking at those Bing maps you linked and it's so out of date, can't see the shard on it at all.
