Can't wait for Newfoundland and 'The Landmark Pinnacle' - which isn't a mouthful at all.

City of London // Cluster Expansion?

Website: http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/faa32078-4c12-11e6-88c5-db83e98a590a.html#axzz4FcHirIjG

Publisher: Financial Times

I personally thought this was a great read about the City Cluster expanding southwards toward the Walkie-Talkie. It makes me wonder if the Walkie-Talkie was purposefully built there so that developers could 'fill' the gap later on with more towers. I'd also be very interested to see the '3D Models' the City have come up with.

City of London planners may seek changes to the capital’s historic protected views as they move to expand the cluster of skyscrapers that has transformed the skyline over the past two decades.
The City of London Corporation, which runs the Square Mile, is eyeing a southward extension of the group of towers towards the “Walkie Talkie” building as it runs out of potential development sites in the existing cluster.

New towers are already planned in the current cluster, notably the 62-storey 22 Bishopsgate, the 73-storey One Undershaft — which has yet to secure planning permission — and the “Scalpel” tower on Lime Street, which will house the London headquarters of the US insurer WR Berkley.
But the “Walkie Talkie”, a contentious design by the Uruguayan architect Rafael Vinoly, stands apart from that cluster, whose growth accelerated after the construction of Norman Foster’s “Gherkin” in 2001.
The corporation is carrying out 3D modelling of different scenarios for future property development ahead of a three-month consultation to be launched in September, with the results to be announced early next year.
Christopher Hayward, who took over in April as chairman of the corporation’s planning and transportation committee, said the City needed to continue expanding upwards to maintain its competitive advantage as a financial district. “Our business could go south of the river or to Westminster unless we expand,” Mr Hayward said. “In the wake of Brexit, Frankfurt and Paris are also competition.”


The Brexit vote has cast a shadow over the City with the suggestion that companies will relocate parts of their businesses elsewhere in Europe — particularly financial services firms at risk of losing passporting rights. It has also called into question new property developments: the investors behind 22 Bishopsgate have said they are reviewing their plans.
Mr Hayward said his team was embarking on a round of meetings with developers to see how the vote to leave the EU would affect their schemes. “Consents that would have gone on site quite quickly may delay until they see how Brexit turns out.”

But he also wants to maintain a bullish attitude to property development, in part to send a signal that London remains open for business. City office occupancy rates stand at 97 per cent, a high that at least pre-Brexit signalled strong appetite for office space.
“We only have two or three more sites remaining in the eastern cluster. We want to retain growth in terms of buildings while maintaining the conservation areas,” Mr Hayward said. “We could seek changes to the sight lines. We can see if that is something that is supported. We are keen to think outside the box.”
Development in the City has been dictated in part by the protected views, which include sight lines to St Paul’s Cathedral and the World Heritage Site at the Tower of London. For instance, the tapered profile of the “Cheesegrater”, or Leadenhall Building, is designed to protect a view from Fleet Street to St Paul’s.
The sight lines include views stretching as far as 10 miles, such as that from King Henry VIII’s Mound in Richmond to St Paul’s. However, the width of this and other viewing corridors was narrowed under Ken Livingstone, the former London mayor.

The mayoralty was handed additional powers over sight lines from central government under the Housing and Planning Act, which became law in May. The newly elected mayor, Sadiq Khan, has promised to be “pro-business” but has not so far faced a test of his attitude to protected views.
Moves to expand the skyscraper cluster would encounter opposition. Barbara Weiss, co-founder of the Skyline Campaign — formed two years ago to oppose the proliferation of towers in London — said it would be a “complete disaster”. “If they keep to what they have decided in the past, that is already pushing the envelope,” she said.
Calling the protected views “very arbitrary”, she said London planners should ensure that “lots of other views, and assets such as parks and streets, are protected”.
What are your thoughts?

I'm all for extending the cluster southwards to 20FC.

Careful when you copy text from the FT, each time it's usually accompanied by a paragraph about sharing their content

That could be a really great building if a good quality brick is used.

I'm absolutely all for extending the cluster toward 20FC too. However, I still think that building 20FC was a strategic move so that they could expand the cluster southwards.

Ahhh okay, I'll bear that in mind in the future! Thanks SE9!

Excellent project. I adore the two main towers and the theatre. The place looks so gorgeous. It'd be great to some brick developments like this in Stratford.
