That is indeed the cancelled Riverside South development. Unfortunately it was cancelled when J.P. Morgan decided to stay put at 25 Bank Street, the former home of Lehman Brothers before its insolvency.

Are JP just clinging onto it then or will it be sold on? It's a huge piece of real estate.

It will be sold, a mixed use proposal is expected for the site.

The works are complete to ground level or just below, are they not? Is whoever takes on the site expected to keep the same design and / or height?

Would be a crying shame if the Riverside South site ended up occupied by some mid rise, instantly forgettable work of ordinariness.

With unobstructed views westward to the City, and vice versa, the RS site is probably the best located and consequently most valuable vacant site at CW. While JPM may have decided for the moment not to develop the existing twin tower proposal, there is nothing stopping it from happening in the future, or a variation, or a mixed us proposal. If JPM wanted to unload the site, it could do anytime, but it has taken a more long term view, presumably to await a developer with a very large project who is willing to pay a high price for this real estate. When a serious proposal comes along, it is likely to be as big and grandiose as the current RS design if not more so. However, given the lack of news at the moment, this may be a project to be implemented in the 2020s.

JPM has hired property agents to sell the site. Given its location, there'll be no shortage of suitors.

The new proposal can be a new design that utilises the existing substructure.

Yep


City of London, Public consultation for 22 Bishopsgate
Date: 15 Jun 2015

Designs for the proposed tower at 22 Bishopsgate will be displayed for the first time today as part of a public exhibition. The exhibition is to be held on site at 22 Bishopsgate and comes ahead of the anticipated submission of a new planning application later this summer. The new design follows the acquisition of the site earlier this year by a consortium of international investors led by AXA Real Estate, with Lipton Rogers acting as development partner.

22 Bishopsgate will fill an obvious gap at the centre of the City's cluster of tall buildings. Work stopped in 2012 on the previous development of the site, which was granted planning approval in 2007 and had a consent that was designed for different economic conditions, with only the foundations, basements and the lift core up to level nine having been completed. Of the existing structure, the foundations and basements will be retained, helping minimise the disruption from the new proposal.

The new design, led by Karen Cook of PLP Architects, responds to recent towers, which have been approved and developed in the area since 2007, whilst respecting designated views from around London. The proposed building is 278m and 62 storeys tall; 10m lower than the previously approved consent. Overall the building will provide more than 1.4 million sqft of net internal area with the floor plates shaped to reduce the mass of the building, whilst offering the optimum size and configuration for potential occupiers.

At the top of the building will be a public viewing gallery, which will have dedicated lifts, be free to the public and sit alongside a two storey public restaurant and bar.

Well, if the cladding is nice (similar to Shard) it could be quite good actually… although it is no Pinnacle.

That render looks great. A boxy skyline in the city will look better in the long run.

I couldn't be more disappointed with the new design.

Can't we all write to Boris or something, in one last desperate plea to bring the Pinnacle back?

I like it but still want to see a higher quality render of the cladding before I make a final judgement on it. I think at the moment, it looks better than a value engineered pinnacle, as it would end up looking like tour first in la defence.

It's no Pinnacle, but it looks okay.... Maybe it could do with a slight redesign on the top to add a bit of a spire and make the building look a bit less blocky. Otherwise okay
