Great job on Salters' Hall. I wouldn't have renovated it any other way.

I initially misread 1976 as 1796 and thought that for a "renovation" it was rather drastic and disrespectful

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:






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?

Besides that yes than the Southbank is a misley inter city backwater.
I said Southbank Place, not the Southbank as a whole.
