The developers are holding a gathering to show to locals the MAKE designed new tower on the Thursday 18th June from 1pm - 8pm.
idd one housing group plans to rebuild a big swath of the area around. I received the notification when i lived in Kelson House tower. i think the all isle of dogs is gonna be full of towers developments in the next decade. and dont forget Greenwich peninsula just across the river.

Not to worry, there's usually more than one from the London forum that attends planning exhibitions at the Isle of Dogs.

Heres a neat little tool...

If the borehole survey platform was the extent of the Garden Bridge I'd give it my unreserved support.

The New York Times is shifting their European/international operations to London.

The NYT will move from their current home at 1 New Oxford Street to an expanded base at 18 Museum Street nearby. Once they have vacated 1 New Oxford Street, the building will be closed for extensive renovations, pictured below.


New York Times bets on London over Paris
Financial Times
7 June 2015


Quote:
The New York Times is ramping up its presence in London at the expense of its long-term European headquarters in Paris, a shift it attributes to France’s inflexible employment laws.

The company has merged its London bureau with the London office of the International New York Times, adding digital editors and a branded content studio, while departing editorial staff at its Paris operation are not being replaced, according to people familiar with the matter.

This one is so 'basic' but in a really great way, if that makes any sense. I feel like every high rise resi proposal in London should pass a Horizons test. Is it better than Horizons? Ok, build it. No? It looks in any way cheaper or naffer than that. Go away, rework your design if you want to risk the cost. Or, you know, just build one of these.
