He did mention the other day on the london forum that he saw some Aykon Nine Elms marketing on a flight to Dubai - so lots of business travel from what I can infer, but that is only an inference. (Maybe he won the lottery and it's pleasure travel, lol)

I'm actually living in the country at the moment so pasting some updates into this thread keeps me in touch with london at least

He's too busy still crying over Brexit with all the other cry baby losers in the UK skybar.

He doesn't want to post good news about London developments because it goes against their narrative of the coming UK financial apocalypse caused by all the ignorant racist idiots outside of London.

..still waiting for that.

Luckily, you are not the one who decides if something is ruined or not, since you can't even make a nice distinction between what's tacky and what's sophisticated and elegant.
One more time, congratulations to London, so many projects, so much quality.

Do you really think that he would stop updating the thread because of the Brexit?
Please guys, stop mixing up things.

Blow job caf้ prospects ruled out by Westminster City Council
Getwestlondon.co.uk
12th August 2016

Quote:
Westminster City Council has dismissed suggestions a caf้ where customers receive oral sex with their coffee could open in Paddington .

It has been reported that Bradley Charvet, who opened the first fellatio caf้ in Geneva, Switzerland, earlier this year has set his sights on opening another one in Praed Street in central London.

The controversial shop would give customers the chance to purchase a sex act alongside their hot drink.

But a spokesperson for Westminster City Council dismissed the idea as nonsense.

He added that, even if the idea were to be put through to the licensing committee, it would be highly unlikely to make it through based on legal grounds.

Exactly

I posted development news and updates for weeks following the referendum.

I've been quiet for the past few weeks because I've spent most of August in the Middle East and Africa. Sorry to destroy Rooster's bizarre assertions.

How London Might Have Looked // Failed Schemes

Website: https://www.theguardian.com/cities/2...t-river-thames

Publisher: The Guardian

Very interesting little read in The Guardian yesterday. Imagine having a monorail going through Regent's St. and London's tallest building being over 100 years old!

Thankfully some of these projects were never built, but some I feel would have been a good addition to London. Take a read and see what you think.


Personally I think it's a shame this tower doesn't exist:



Quote:
When the massive Great Exhibition of 1851 was dismantled, a number of plans for what to do with the temporary prefab structure included what would still be London’s highest skyscraper.

Proposed by Charles Burton, the skyscraper would have stood at around 1,000 ft high, and thanks to its elevated location in Sydenham, south London, the summit would be 100 ft higher than the Shard, currently London’s tallest building.

“Vertical railways” would have carried people to the summit for the views, while curiously, a giant clock would have been the centrepiece half way up.

However, the investors favoured keeping their feet on the ground, and instead built the Crystal Palace.

Had the skyscraper been attempted, it is likely that the weight of the ironwork would have brought the whole thing crashing down – though a fire would eventually destroy the Crystal Palace.

What's worth considering from this article are the impractical projects that were fortunately not built.

What are your opinion's on what's being built right now? Is London losing it's identity or building on-top of a great one? Finally, do you think future generations will write about how we got it right/wrong in regards to developments in London?

Probably provoking article but London now is most educated city in Europe by big margin:

Quote:
Would it be a particularly earnest quarter of Oslo? Or an erudite corner of Finland or Germany?

The answer - by a considerable distance - is London. In parts of London, more than two in three adults of working age, have a degree or higher education equivalent.

It is above anywhere in the European Union and unlike anywhere else in the United Kingdom.

It suggests how this mega-city, drawing talent from around the globe, has become a different type of economy. It's a city state of the digital age, trading in ideas.

The highest concentration of graduates is 69.7% in "inner London west", an area including Camden, the City of London, Kensington and Chelsea, Hammersmith and Fulham, Wandsworth and Westminster.

In second place is "inner London east", with 58.3%, including Haringey, Islington, Hackney, Newham, Lambeth, Lewisham, Southwark and Tower Hamlets.

Two other clusters of London boroughs to the south and west of London are in third and sixth place.

The nearest rivals are a region of Belgium to the south of Brussels and the Norwegian capital, Oslo, both about 54%.

You're constantly getting back to personal insults and remarks.
Obviously you can't handle opinions that differ from yours and that's all you come up with. Just go troll elsewhere.

If you were an actual "Architecture Lover", you'd rather decide to discuss architectural matters instead getting at people on such a low level.

Said the user who used some of the most harsh words to convince us that modernism is trash. Please stop with the cynicism. I'm only telling you that beside your Freudian Slip, for me the reality is far from your perception and luckily one tower is not going to ruin London's skyline especially not the one you've quoted, since it's very well designed and I'm sure the cladding will be top quality.
Last but not least, it's the second decade of the 21'st century.
