Bear in mind the initial part of Vauxhall Square starting is the smaller brown tower to the left of the picture, not the main twin towers.

Quote:
A company offering flexible office space for co-workers is believed to have its sights set on Canary Wharf.

Reports claim WeWork is holding “advanced talks” to become the first to move into a 110,000sqft space at the 22-acre site formerly known as Wood Wharf.

The site, currently being developed by estate landlords Canary Wharf Group , aims to offer a “residential led mixed use, waterside community” alongside commercial office space, shops and restaurants.

Property website Estates Gazette claims the firm is in the final stages of negotiations to lease the unit with rent charges of £50 per sq ft.

If successful, the deal will see WeWork launch at its first residential development in Europe.

At least Terminal 5 and Terminal 2 at LHR have lifted London's stature in this respect.

Terminal 5 was plagued with early Baggage system failures when it opened in 2008 , further the due the way in which the overhead lights were installed. They have not been replaced one in its five years , which resulted in Heathrow having to taking extra-ordinary measures

Demand is still outpacing supply and the supply that has come to the market has largely been let at significant levels. Rents are also still going up at around 10pc annually. It'll only begin to peak once even more space delivers. Investment sales pricing also continues to rise, although it has somewhat begun to slow.

Totally agree. Can't we agree at least on this forum that, however good the intrinsic design of a building, we should be aiming for a few beautiful clusters in London, not single buildings raising their heads in unsuitable locations. A building like this in Paddington will just fuel the anger of those who are opposed to ALL tall buildings. We need a beautiful City, a beuautiful Canary Wharf and a beautiful Nine Elms. (And the absurd "gap" which is 22 Bishopsgate needs to be filled quickly.)
