I saw your reply, about Monico (that's now probably deleted). It said the document was unavailable. Thanks anyway. I was interested about the material on the edge and the roof of the building.

AXA commits to 22 Bishopsgate
26 October 2016 | By Richard Williams

AXA Investment Managers - Real Assets has announced it will continue with the construction of 22 Bishopsgate in the City of London.

In the days following the Brexit vote, AXA – along with a consortium of investors – put the development under review, but in a statement today said: “The commitment demonstrates AXA IM - Real Assets’ and the consortium of international investors’ confidence in how appealing this highly progressive 1.4m sq ft development will be to all types of international and domestic occupiers.

“This confidence is based on the unique and broad range of amenities and types of space that 22 Bishopsgate will offer, as well as its prime location in the City of London, as one of the leading global centres for international business, notwithstanding the current uncertainties created by the EU Referendum.”

A contractor for the main build of the tower will be appointed within the next few weeks, with work due to commence thereafter.

Significant preparatory works have already been undertaken on the site, including completing the foundations and ground works, which utilised those from the previous unfinished development, to allow for an accelerated construction timetable.

The target completion date is 2019.

“Firm belief in the project”

Pierre Vaquier, chief executive of AXA IM - Real Assets, said: “Our ongoing commitment to 22 Bishopsgate reflects our firm belief, and that of our clients and partners, in this development project, aligned to the fact we are taking a long term view of this investment.

“The decision to proceed underscores our confidence in the progressive and attractive development that we will deliver at 22, coupled with the anticipated breadth of demand from local and global occupiers for easily accessible space in a prime location in the City of London, as one of the leading global centres for international business, that will respond to their future business needs.”

Chris Hayward, chairman of planning and transportation at the City of London Corporation, said: “I’m pleased that 22 Bishopsgate is moving forward.

“This decision to continue with what is a key development in the City of London’s Eastern Cluster demonstrates the high level of investor confidence in London’s future growth.”

Whilst architecturally speaking 22 BG is a bit, well,quite frankly.. complete crap. There are more important issues at stake for London & the wider UK economy with this confirmation of construction going ahead.

So haters of this project should take one for the team.

Good news with 22 Bishopsgate. I'd love to see it with a Spire of some sort...

Was at the Sky Garden today and had a chance to briefly take some pictures. One of them, although not perfectly clear as taken through glass, shows the developing clusters of Nine Elms and Elephant and Castle. Also you can see the roof of 33 Central on London Bridge.

London Projects

Battersea Power Station to House Apple's New London Headquarters
Quote:
The cachet of Apple, one of the world's leading technology superpowers, is hard to ignore. Their stores are constantly bustling with eager and early adopters of their innovative products, which have come to define the current age of obsessive digital interconnectivity. These busy showcases of modernity are usually found in the trendiest neighbourhoods of top-tier cities. In a move to propel the brand even further, Apple has announced their intention to establish a new London headquarters inside the iconic Battersea Power Station.

Telford Homes Boosts Stratford's Stature with 31-Storey Tower

Quote:
London has transformed from a mostly tower-less cityscape into one of the densest and most impressive skylines on the continent. Canary Wharf and the historic core of London, known as 'The City,' have both been dramatically altered, as modern glass office and residential skyscrapers vertically expand the capital's prominence. With these two business districts filling out, other neighbourhoods across the global city are similarly shooting skywards. The East London community of Stratford, famous for Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and the enormous Westfield Stratford City shopping complex, is undergoing a regeneration of its own. A £15 billion investment, representing an increase in population of 131,000 people and 62,000 jobs, is giving this gateway to Central London a fresh face, and Telford Homes' Stratford Central project is just one piece of the larger redevelopment puzzle.

Concrete Core of Latest Canary Wharf Office Tower Shooting Skywards

Quote:
Rivalling London's historic 'City', where new development has challenged citizens' comfort zone when it comes to density and tall buildings, Canary Wharf has become an international hub for business. After owning and developing nearly 100 acres of property here and across London, Canary Wharf Group has overseen this dramatic urban renaissance during the past two decades. Having constructed more office space in the city than any other developer, the company's track record is immaculate, and they're not even close to being finished. Looking at the mountain-like skyline from the Thames, it may seem like the area has reached its breaking point, that there simply isn't any room left to build. But aerial shots reveal open lots ready to welcome another round of world-class modern towers. Continuing with the neighbourhood's contemporary aesthetic of gleaming glass buildings, Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates is the architect behind the district's latest soaring skyscraper, known as HQ - Five Bank Street.
Visible Progress at New London Riverfront Development
Quote:
In a sign of the times, the fate of an office block at Sugar Quay on the north bank of the Thames was sealed when Barratt London received approval for their plans to build a 165-unit residential development on the property. With that building now under construction, London's urban character continues to evolve.

Manhattan Loft Gardens on the Rise in East London

Quote:
Currently on the rise in Stratford, East London, Manhattan Loft Gardens is set to redefine the local skyline. Designed by SOM for German-Canadian developer Harry Handelsman, CEO of the Manhattan Loft Corporation, the 42-storey, mixed-use hotel and residence will be the tallest building in Stratford, an up-and-coming East London neighbourhood that is projected to become a popular urban destination over the next few years.

You took some great pictures, the terrace and the interior look so pleasant, so bright, I love that building.

The Scalpel should appear on the other side soon, if it hasn't done so already.
