When I walk up Primrose Hill now, near my flat, I can see the glittering towers of Canary Wharf away in the East, then the Gherkin, the Cheesegrater, the Lloyds Building, Heron Tower, then the Shard like an ancient obelisk of silver, then onwards to the London Eye and Nine Elms beyond.

And all of this new. We've come a long way. I do not believe any great western city has been transformed, like this, in the last 50 years.

Do we need some supertalls to make the clusters cohere? Yes (build the bloody Pinnacle as it was intended). But London can already do sights like THIS:

The City and the Shard seen from Brixton. Like a dream city. A mystical citadel. Unique.

That is truly wonderful shot and I sincerely hope that the City cluster continues to thicken so that soon enough it will look that marvellous from every angle.

Regarding Greenwich Peninsula, just how rough is that model in the picture? Because if it's to scale height-wise then woah.

Second highest jump in London office starts for 20 years
Construction Enquirer
19 May 2015


Quote:
The scramble by developers to meet rising demand for new office space has powered up a 24% surge in London building activity.

According to Deloitte Real Estate’s latest London Office Crane Survey there were 31 new project starts in the last six months, promising an extra 4.4m sq ft.

Steve Johns, head of City leasing at Deloitte Real Estate, said the jump in new starts was the second highest in 20 years.

The surge in activity in the Capital takes total office space under construction in central London to 9.5m sq ft.

“We believe that the volume of space under development will rebound further from now through to 2019,” said Johns.

“As the tenant diversification of markets accelerates, available product choice is enabling and even encouraging firms to move to different parts of London, and a change in working practices is impacting what tenants need from their buildings.”

This view is supported by the number of developers seeking to ready additional sites for construction, with demolition or site preparation being carried out for schemes totalling 5.1m sq ft.

BDP scoops Senate House masterplan

London Architect of the Year Award 2015 goes to Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands

Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands has been named RIBA London Architect of the Year for its flagship Foyles bookshop on Charing Cross Road.

The scheme also won the client of the year award, with the strong relationship forged between designer and client impressing the judges.

“The project is a triumphant resurrection of a stuffy and declining bookstore into a dynamic literary emporium that transforms bookshopping for Londoners,” said the judges.

The London Building of the Year award went to The Foundry, Architecture 00’s social justice centre created from a former shoe polish factory in Vauxhall.

Swathes and sections of the city are certainly a work in progress.

London's lost Tube stations to see commercial revival
Al Jazeera
19 May 2015


Quote:
Restaurants, art galleries and a cinema are planned for one disused Mayfair station.

London's underground rail system has a long and storied history of being used for tasks other than transporting the city's millions of residents.

With passenger numbers dwindling, Down Street Station closed more than 80 years ago, only to become the corridors of power during the second world war.

Twenty metres below ground and safe from German air force bombs, Prime Minister Winston Churchill, along with 25 administrative staff and soldiers, used the station to meet his war cabinet and send messages.

In 2015 there is no longer a need for such wartime preparations, but there are plans to once again revive London's so-called ghost stations with restaurants, art galleries and even a cinema.

Speaking on the plans for Down Street Station, Graeme Craig, commercial director of Transport for London, told Al Jazeera: ''This is a unique space within London. It's a space not used by passengers since May 1932. … It's in the heart of Mayfair - it's unique location, history, and space."
