Just how many towers are currently U/C or proposed on the isle of dogs? It seems like over the next decade it's going to double maybe treble in size.

Thanks for that. Pretty amazing stuff really when you think about it.

40 100m+ new towers will create such an imposing skyline.

it's absolutely insane. I don't think there is another European City that has so many skyscrapers proposed into such a relatively small area.

It's a real pity that Quay House was rejected , it was one of my favourite proposals. All they needed to do was to stick a Pret at the base and it would of sailed through.

I live in Docklands with my family and they've planned to demolish our homes which are right across the street from the Baltimore Tower. Although it's still in the first stages but us locals who've lived here 30+ years and own our properties are slowly being pushed out because of the fact our homes site on prime location.

Today we received leaflet of another tower being planned for in 225 Marsh Wall which is 2 minutes walkaway and across from the street from Skyline Village (which is also being demolished). The developers are holding a gathering to show to locals the MAKE designed new tower on the Thursday 18th June from 1pm - 8pm.

Could you go along for us , please ?

I would go , but the 3hr round trip to get to IOD simply isn't worth it.

Oh, London.

Tonight I took my nine year old daughter to Hampstead Heath. On the way through the woods, we heard a nightingale. Just as John Keats did, a few yards away, in the garden of the Spaniard's Inn (still there)(where Byron, Dickens, Dick Turpin and the Gordon Rioters all drank) - an experience which inspired his immortal poem, Ode to a Nightingale.


"The coming musk-rose, full of dewy wine,
The murmurous haunt of flies on summer eves..."

Then we emerged from the primordial oakwoods, in the heart of north London, and gazed south on That New Skyline of the Shard, the Gherkin and Canary Wharf.

No other city in the world can compare. Modernity, antiquity, and rhapsodic poetry. Amazing.
