Cheers, I tend not to post when a page is already saturated or includes excessively large images and so forth.

The redevelopment of Euston can't come soon enough.

Great updates as always SE9 and fair play to Mr Cladding for stepping up the updates too!

So glad Euston is finally going to get redeveloped, I use it regularly and it is crying out to be rebuilt. Shame about the HS1-2 link, but understandable.

Really hope the Euston Arch gets resurrected, a great piece of heritage would be a nice contrast to a modern new terminus, speaking of which, what an amazing collection of stations London will have once this is done.

Is there another city in the world that has as many quality stations?

Still don't like the building on Mayfair, but it's better than what's there before at least.

You guys should provide direct Google Maps links for projects. Copying and pasting addresses is a long process.

Can anyone please tell me why are built slim towers before the real tower is been built?

Like, in this case:



I've seen, in this forum, many other constructions in many other countries, but any of them do this.

That's a good question. I'd not mind knowing that too. I can guess though, maybe it's structural reasons or maybe it's because that's where the stairs go I dunno shrugs.

with the disclaimer that this is just inferred from lounging on this forum, and i'm not an engineer or anything, so forgive me for innaccuracies...

that's a concrete core, generally containing the elevator shafts, stairs, and probably key services like A/C and plumbing I guess?

many projects use them I think because it's the cheapest/easiest way to build tall, safely. nice bog-standard simple rectangle of concrete taking most of the load, and you can still make your floors fancy shapes if you really want to, without having too much complication feeding through into the load bearing elements.

i think they tend to go up faster than the surrounding floors because in some cases it has to be a continuous process of building because of the concrete, and even when it's not, from a project management perspective, it's probably cheaper and easier to keep all your 'core crew' working flat out, than artificially slow them down to whatever pace the surrounding floor plates can keep up with.

Another reason is that a concrete core has to have some time to get the required strength to bear loads of adjacent slabs. That's one of the reasons of a difference in height.

its a design that's been going for thousands of years - the central core takes all the load. This makes for a strong yet flexible design - for example pagodas are earthquake proof, and in the thousands of years of their existence they've hardly ever been documented to fall (almost always they succumb to fire over the centuries). This is how the ancients built the world's first 'highrises'.
