We already have the Royal Opera House. Oh and that little thing called the Royal Albert Hall.
The point is that the concert hall proposal is not intended to be "just one of many concert halls in London". Rather, the intention is to design and build a concert hall of the highest standards, to be the equal of the finest concert halls ever built anywhere in the world. London has a number of concert halls, but none has been considered to possess world class concert hall qualities since the loss in WW2 of the Queen's Hall: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Queen%27s_Hall

If one is going to undertake such a project, and locate it to a prominent site on the Thames with St Paul's as a backdrop, is a design which mimics the current post war building satisfactory? I would like to think that London can do better than that, otherwise why not just build economic bland buildings all the time as London has plenty of fine buildings already.

Sad... although these buildings didn't look that nice, they were still part of London's history. Thank you for letting me know! @JamieUK

Didn't those buildings have to be demolished to make way for the Crossrail access shaft, and the redevelopment of Tottenham Court Road station?

Correct - architecturally not a huge loss. However a lot of sentiment and good times lost with the necessary destruction of the Astoria.

Balfour Beatty has agreed to begin preliminary work on a planned 53-storey residential tower in London, putting it on course to clinch a £150m deal to build the skyscraper. The London-listed builder said it had secured a £1m contract for services ahead of full construction of The Madison, located adjacent to Canary Wharf, London’s second financial centre.

“Early works such as demolition and below-ground enabling works have been undertaken and full construction will start in the first half of this year,” said Nick Crawford of LBS Properties, which is managing the development on behalf of Jersey-based ED Group. “[Balfour] is in the driving seat to win the main construction contract, [worth] circa £150m,” he added.

...

LBS said it had already pre-sold around 100 units at The Madison to buyers from the UK, Hong Kong, mainland China and the Middle East. The 187-metre tower is scheduled for completion by the end of 2019.

Under its “pre-construction services agreement” with LBS, Balfour will work on areas including logistics and procurement from February.

Why does it take so long to build a tower in London, the slowness of it, from planning permission to completion is painfully slow.
