It's my most favorite tower rising in London right now. The cladding should be pristine and of excellent quality.

Kew Gardens wants contractor for £50m revamp



Royal Botanical Gardens in Kew is preparing to start tendering for a contractor to deliver a £50m programme of works to its Grade I and Grade II listed buildings.

It expects to spend £5m-£10m a year over the next five years on a mixed programme of works including new builds, refurbishment of historic buildings and repair and replacement of M&E systems.

The successful programme contracting partner will also used to deliver work at the Wakehurst Place site in West Sussex.


Kew is expected to release an official tender notice within the next few months, but firms interested in more information can email the procurement office.

ISG recently secured the last major contract at UNESCO World Heritage site to restore the Grade-I listed Temperate House, dating from 1863. The £34m restoration project will see the Victorian glasshouse will remain shut until May 2018.

The new programme of works will include restoring Kew’s iconic 10-storey Pagoda built in 1762.

Not sure why, but I can't see the video when I click on the link.
Looking at the photo above I realize the Leadenhall building is such a precious gem, it reinvented London's skyline in such a nice way. The beauty of modern architecture.

maybe it will work if you go to http://thescalpelec3.co.uk/webcam/ and hit the 'video' tab, instead of the direct mp4 link I (rather cheekily) grabbed

Thank you for sharing, I saw the time-lapse video, they did so much work, starting from demolition, piling, foundations and floors. Marvelous engineering, I find the core very interesting, it gives an impression that the rest of the building relies on it. The design is very beautiful, the unusual shape reminds me of a piece of blue diamond, or some other precious stone.

Have I mentioned how much I like the fact that London doesn't have a conservative attitude towards modern-contemporary architecture?
Just look how smooth One Blackfriars looks, I love the glorious round edges, quality stuff.

Only true in part. There are many of the so-called conservationists - who would like to see the city frozen as a museum. In terms of visibility, One Blackfriars was itself lopped off to appease the same.

I'm aware about that, the design of the Leadenhall building was created with a lot of respect for London's historical buildings and sights, which I like.
Still modern towers with strikingly contemporary designs seem to be rising, for example One Blackfriars and the Scalpel, they represent two prime examples of beautiful modern architecture, in my opinion. I think 1 Undershaft has a very beautiful design, too.

In some ways these sorts of shots show the scale of construction in London better than the 'money shots' of the more polished construction. So many areas of inner London are densifying like these. Some tall buildings no doubt, but above all, density. That's what the growth associated with an extra 3 million people looks like I guess.

Sorry to mention the B word, but there is much to be lost here if Brexit actually does happen.

Does anybody know what that derelict-looking building in the far right of the photo is? Are there any plans for it?

Yes you can just make out the word 'MILLENNIUM', it's the old Spillers Mills at Silvertown.
