I like it more than the skyscraper, to be honest. It has that Rogers-y, industrial feel that suits London, whereas the replacement is just a glass box. Shame.
That's 1 Finsbury Avenue, which is listed. Recently approved plans will add a couple of stepped back floors so its not going anywhere.

The buildings being replaced are 2 & 3 Finsbury Avenue

Mayor unveils plans to transform London with 13 new river crossings
Evening Standard
3 December 2015


Quote:
London could be transformed by a series of new river crossings, if bold new plans to transform travel in the capital are given the green light.

Mayor of London Boris Johnson unveiled his vision for the future of the capital, with plans for 13 new tunnels and bridges, which would almost double the number of crossing available to pedestrians and cylists.

The plans would also see the total number of river crossings between Imperial Wharf and Dartford increased by more than a third.

The proposals were revealed in a new strategic plan, Connecting the Capital,which outlines how the proposed crossings, from Fulham in the west of the city to Dartford in the east end, will help to meet the needs of London’s rapidly growing population.

By 2030, 10 million people are expected to live in the capital.

Boris Johnson said: “Building a series of new bridges and tunnels across the Thames is essential for the future prosperity of our rapidly-growing city.

Given that it has been given a; height increase , reduction in office space and increase in the number of flats it indicates one of two things :

City of Westminster will approve the scheme , which would represent a dramatic shift in their stance on tall buildings.

The developer is really pushing thier luck , the office space should of been maintained in order to make the height of the building easier to sollow.

That's much bigger. WOW.

Where would this fit on the skyline though.

London seems to be so vast, so many big towers spread all across the place.

If City of Westminster council are not idiots which I hope they are not, they should understand that this area is totally underdeveloped and to be honest comparing to other Railway terminals in London, Paddington station is stuck in time and need very drastic change urgently. This tower would offer all of this.

The optimal location for highrises in Paddington is the immediate around Paddington Basin. However CoW squandered this opportunity and what has been built in its place , fails to interact with the canal. 31 London Street olny gets my approval because of the public realm improvements and capacity increaes to the Bakerloo line ticket hall.

From what I can tell , CoW are likely to approve it as they are getting much needed improvements without any capital outlay.
