Wait a damn minute, this 200m tower wasn't going to be the first to be built just a few months ago, it was supposed to be one of the bland rectangular 150m residential towers that was supposed to rise first.

When did they change their plans?

I think that core may be 10 Park Drive, which is the smaller rectangular one which they're currently selling. Seems to be the right position for that. One Park Drive (the cylindrical one) will be off to the left I think. May be wrong...

Not at all, no single project has been put on hold but few more have started.

No plan change.

10 Park Drive was the first building to be marketed. 1 Park Drive and 10 Park Drive will both rise as part of the same phase.

Crossrail’s concrete progress continues under London

The £14.8billion Crossrail project is forging ahead and tracks have now been laid under London and the final fitting out phase is underway. The project has released pictures of London’s new railway and how the track has been laid.

Crossrail new trains one year away!

Crossrail says that it expects the new Class 345 Bombardier trains to enter service in under a year starting in May 2017 between Liverpool Street (Main Line platforms) to Shenfield. A year later between Heathrow and Paddington (Main Line platforms).

December 2018 trains will run between Paddington through the tunnels to Abbey Wood. Then from May 2019 between Paddington through London to Shenfield followed in December 2019 by the full service linking Reading, Shenfield and Abbey Wood.

Crossrail 2

While Crossrail 1 enters its final phase, Crossrail 2 development work is now well underway and details on a consultation have just been released. Crossrail 2 proposes to connect with the National Rail network serving destinations as far apart as Broxbourne, Epsom, Chessington South, Hampton Court and Shepperton.

The scheme will need a new tunnel under London through central London between Wimbledon, Tottenham Hale and New Southgate. It will relieve pressure on the transport network across London and the South East, enabling 270,000 more people to enter central London every morning at peak time, and will drive the development of 200,000 homes and 200,000 new jobs.

Transport for London (TfL) and Network Rail (NR) are working with the Department for Transport (DfT) to develop Crossrail 2 ahead of the next round of public consultation expected to take place this autumn. Subject to delivering on key recommendations made from the National Infrastructure Commission, a Hybrid Bill could be submitted in 2019 which could enable construction starting in the early 2020s, with the first Crossrail 2 service running in 2033.‎

If built, I think this would be the tallest student accommodation building in the world, overtaking the Student Castle building in Manchester. Admittedly I got that fact from Wikipedia so take it as you will

I stayed at the Roosevelt U Wabash Tower in Chicago a couple of months ago. Its a mixed use building with the upper floors 14-31 used for student accommodation. I believe this building is taller than Rudolf Place, though as said its a mixed use academic/residence building. The views were amazing from the top floor lounge fronting onto Grant Park.
