The amount of construction in this city is amazing. There isn't an emoji with red wine, so here, cheers with beer.
(I'm not a huge fan of beer, maybe because I live on the south of Europe).

Alongside The Scalpel, that's my favorite tower in London rising right now. The first one has edges and angles, and the other one looks smooth and sleek, they both look reflective and glossy.

Just as I was speaking about the tower. As the cladding progresses, I realize I can barely spot frames between each glass panel, and that's a very good thing, because it will help the surfaces of the different angles to look very reflective and as one single piece of cladding. If you can get my point.

Second that. I also like when you can't tell the glass panels apart individually.

Britain gives green light for new $22 billion runway at Heathrow



Britain on Tuesday gave Heathrow Airport the green light to build a new $22 billion (18 billion pounds) runway, ending 25 years of indecision with the most ambitious option available to boost global trade links following the vote to leave the EU.

Heathrow, Europe's busiest airport, had been battling with its smaller rival Gatwick for the right to expand, after successive governments failed to make a decision on a new runway due to environmental and political protests.

"This is a really big decision for this country but it's also the clearest sign post the referendum that this country is very clearly open for business," Transport Minister Chris Grayling told reporters on Tuesday.

London Heathrow Gets Green Light for Growth as Gatwick Loses Out

Prime Minister Theresa May’s government gave the green light to a 16 billion-pound ($20 billion) expansion of London’s crowded Heathrow airport, ending years of prevarication over what has become one of the most contentious issues in British politics.

The announcement Tuesday endorsed the conclusions of a state-sponsored commission that said last year Heathrow and not its rival Gatwick is the best candidate for growth amid a crunch in U.K. flight capacity.

Construction of a new, third landing strip at Heathrow will allow the 70-year-old airport west of London to handle 135 million passengers a year, up from 75 million passengers now.

“The step that government is taking today is truly momentous,” Transport Secretary Chris Grayling said in a statement. “A new runway at Heathrow will improve connectivity in the U.K. itself and crucially boost our connections with the rest of the world, supporting exports, trade and job opportunities.”

£1.4bn Brent Cross shopping mall expansion unveiled



Hammerson and Standard Life have revealed plans for the £1.4bn redevelopment of London’s first major shopping centre.

The Brent Cross shopping centre in North London is set to double in size providing space for over 200 extra retail brands, 40 new restaurants, a cinema complex and hotel accommodation.

The modernisation plan, which is expected to provide 5,000 construction jobs, has been revealed for public consultation ahead of a detailed planning application being submitted next spring.

Under the current plan enabling works will begin in 2017, allowing for a 2018 start on site for expected completion in 2021/2022.

Brent Cross will be kept operational throughout the development process.

The scheme is part of a larger £4.5bn regeneration plan for Brent Cross and Cricklewood, for which Hammerson and Standard Life Investments already has outline planning consent, granted in 2010.

Brent Cross London will also benefit from an enhanced Sturgess Park, a main town square and riverside landscaping delivering new pedestrian and cycling routes.

A new living bridge and a green landscaped boulevard will span the North Circular creating a walkway for people from Brent Cross London to the wider regeneration taking place to the south of Brent Cross London for the very first time.

The Heathrow decision was near-inevitable, as I and others had argued here previously.

There will be quite some competition between this, Wembley Park and an expanded Westfield London. They should all be successful nevertheless.

I'll post hq renders on this and other projects once the thread reaches a new page.

There's a new development up in my area of the woods...Harrow Square.

'Situated less than a minutes’ walk from Harrow-on-the-Hill station, Harrow Square will deliver 318 new homes, focussing on a bespoke-designed public space which, once complete, will be able to play host to events such as weekend markets and outdoor cinema screenings. The majority of apartments have private balconies which, in addition to communal rooftop terraces, offer picturesque views across Greater London. Selected apartments will also have access to their own private roof terraces.'

Tallest building seems to be around 20 storeys which is certainly taller than anything else currently in this area.

It'll certainly make its mark on the local skyline.

New London phone boxes to offer free calls and Wi-Fi
BBC News
25 October 2016


Quote:
New phone boxes offering free calls and ultrafast Wi-Fi are to be introduced on the streets of central London.

The Link kiosks will provide Wi-Fi with speeds of up to 1Gbps to nearby users, free UK landline and mobile calls and phone charging points.

BT said "at least 750" will appear across the capital over the next year, as well as being introduced in other cities.

The service will be funded through advertising on the devices.

A touch-screen tablet on the kiosks will give access to maps, directions and local services while sensors will capture real-time data of the local environment such as pollution levels and air temperature.
