This tower has to have the best curtain wall in Europe. Proof that with nice cladding, you can make any shape look good.

Shame One Blackfriars doesn't have better buildings to reflect.

You seem to forget that Ludgate house will be demolished to make way for more shiny flats.

This is a grower for me. At first i was not sure about the random cladding , however given that the cladding will be of stone and aluminum that more than makes up for it.

Old Oak Common Park Royal £10 billion regeneration

London forum thread: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...1640745&page=8

Official website: https://www.london.gov.uk/about-us/o...poration-opdc/


Project facts
  • London boroughs : Brent , Ealing and Hammersmith and Fulham
  • Area: 650ha
  • Homes: 25,500
  • Jobs: 65,000
  • The UK’s largest regeneration programme
  • Transport Improvements; two new London Overground stations at Hythe Road and Old Oak Common Lane , HS2 and Crossrail and GWML interchange with station upgrades at North Acton and Willesden Junction.



Government agrees ‘in principle’ to Old Oak land transfer as part of HS2 regeneration
Bdaily.co.uk
23rd March 2016

Quote:
The government has announced that it has agreed in-principle to transfer government-owned land to the Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation (OPDC) in West London.

It is hoped the land transfer will unlock massive regeneration at the site, including 25,500 new homes and 65,000 jobs, as part of the HS2 rail development.

Currently London’s largest regeneration site, the government believes the early transfer of land to OPDC, the corporation set up to manage and run development in the area, will speed up work and ensure that the development is as smooth as possible.

Development at Old Oak in West London is to turn the area into a crucial part of London’s transport infrastructure; with visions of a new transport super-hub, where the soon to be completed Crossrail line will meet with HS2 and the Great Western Main Line to connect London with the west and north of the UK.

Regeneration efforts at Old Oak are part of an anticipated UK-wide economic boost provided by the £55bn HS2 project.

Touching upon the benefits he believes the new high-speed rail project will bring, Transport Minister Robert Goodwill said: "HS2 is not just a train line. I have already seen the transformative change that this project is triggering in Old Oak Common, Birmingham and elsewhere even before spades hit the ground next year.

"That is why we’ve brought forward growth funding for northern locations - so they too can maximise the potential for their own region, thanks to HS2."

Hopefully they are paying for that themselves.

The taxpayer has already had to foot the bill for their stadium.

The stadium already has a capacity of more than 70K. Increasing from 54K to 60K is therefore merely a matter of West Ham using 6K seats - that are outside optimal viewing distances for football - that were previously not going to be used. As such, the cost will be negligible. Or even nil.

Nevertheless, you are absolutely correct to say that West Ham should pay greater rent that takes this added capacity into account. They cannot be allowed to increase their revenues from ticket sales without the public purse also benefiting.

In fact, I'd be very surprised if that hasn't already been agreed.

The Stadium should look very impressive with the largest screens in Europe wrapped around them.

I recently read an article comparing London's new building spree to Dubai's. I don't see that at all. Sure some of these are generic but at least they are not going out of their way to be the ugliest towers of all time. I think a lot of these look pretty good and the ones that don't at least blend in enough that you wont really notice. I think the biggest difference is that these don't have huge parking podiums at the base to kill all street life and they are mostly glass instead of 1600 feet of horrendous precast like Dubai.

A lot of London's building spree is actually improvements to infrastructure and updating neighbourhoods.

Yes, there's a lot of new prime real estate being constructed too, but a lot of it is re-establishing the already established but worn down or outdated.
