Architecture-wise, King's Cross is one of the best regeneration projects in Europe, and no, you won't find posts of mine criticising it.

I agree that's a fantastic project. Very expressive, almost expressionist. Just love how the 'historical' roof is somewhat organically continued. And the materials! That's how it's done, people! But things like that should be limited to rather solitary buildings like industrial warehouses and similar, as seen here.

Anyway, supergeil! Congrats London. Now reality has to live up to these phenomenal renders...

You can see larger versions of the Coal Drops Yard renders in this post, from the King's Cross thread.

It's a wonderfully innovative thing to do with the old iron gas holders.

Not sure if previously posted but worth a read.




Quote:
London's skyscrapers are fast becoming the most expensive in the world after a latest report revealed that tower rents in the Square Mile grew at 10 per cent over the last six months to $122 a square foot.

The rate of increase was substantially ahead of its global rivals and provides further evidence that the capital is back to its best since the financial crisis. Skyscrapers fell out of fashion after 2008 when financial firms made steep staff cuts and therefore required less space. Skyscrapers while were also considered ostentatious during the sober years of austerity.

The 10 per cent growth means prices in London are now growing five times faster than mega cities such as New York and Hong Kong, and three times faster than Tokyo.
