Yeah, I really liked the future skyline of the city with the old bishopgate design and without this undershaft building. That looked really cool and innovative, now it looks like a mess. But I still love all the developments in Nine Elms and especially Canary Wharf, which could get the best european skyline.

We're typically faster than Dezeen and the general press when it comes to skyscraper proposals!

Ok, I'll note that for the future. I looked six pages back before posting mine. So I didn't expect them to be that much slower.
At least the PDF link at the bottom is very interesting. Should I remove the already posted pictures?

Green light for major London city office rebuild

London planners have given the thumbs up to redevelop a 1991-constructed city office building at 60 London Wall.

The existing office will be stripped back to its steel frame and rebuilt with an extra four floors raising the total office space to 320,000 sq ft.

Designs by architect EPR see the upper five floors of the 12-storey building stepped and set back from the front elevation lessening their impact at street level and creating outdoor space for terraces.

Enabling works will now start with structural demolition set to begin in April. Work will start on the superstructure just before the end of next year with the building ready for tenants at the end of 2019.

‎LaSalle Investment Management bought the 260,000 sq ft building for just under £200m last summer on behalf of California State Teachers’ Retirement System.

Gary Player, Head of London Business Space, ‎LaSalle Investment Management commented: “We acquired 60 London Wall because of its prime location in an area that is becoming more accessible, with Crossrail/Elizabeth line, as well as the opportunity to create significant additional lettable area and a first-class product that we will be delivering in 2019.”

Is this what they're replacing? It's quite a nice postmodern building.





The postmodernist heritage conservation effort needs to step up its game.

Devastated about 22 Bishopsgate! Really liked the previous proposal and thought a spire on top would of been pretty cool too. The new design looks like a pile of crap tbh.

ISG set for £60m Westminster City Hall revamp



ISG is understood to be a front runner in the race to secure Westminster City Council’s £60m project to refurbish its City Hall building in London.

Council chiefs are pressing ahead with the headquarters overhaul as maintenance of the 1960s building has become increasingly difficult and costly.

The 19-floor tower revamp is expected to take up to two years to complete and is due to get underway early in 2017.

Designed by BDP, the 64 Victoria Street project will include repair and cleaning of the external stonework and the replacement of all windows.

Internally the contractor will replace building services and install new lifts. The 19th floor will be improved with floor to ceiling windows and new plant fitted to the roof, raisjng the building’s height slightly.

According to construction information specialist Glenigan ISG is bidding against Wates and Graham Construction for the big refurb job.

Faithful & Gould is acting as the cost consultant.

Councillor Robert Davis MBE DL, Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for the Built Environment, said: “City Hall plays an important role in the public life of Westminster but it is currently underperforming, both for visitors and staff as well as environmentally.

Mace wins pre-construction deal on £500m Shoreditch towers



Malaysian investor AlloyMtd Group has confirmed Mace has won the pre-construction services deal for its £450m One Crown Place project in east London.

One Crown Place is situated on the edge of the City of London and will consist of two residential tower blocks above an office podium building.

Currently the site is being prepared for construction with piling due to start in March 2017 and construction is set to be completed by summer 2020.

Under the pre-contract services agreement Mace will work with AlloyMtd Group to design and procure the sub-contractor packages, the first part of a two-stage construction process.

It is hoped that a major project contract will then be signed in autumn 2017.

AlloyMtd Group President and Chief Executive Officer, Tan Sri Dr Azmil Khalid said: “This is the first project of its type that AlloyMtd has developed in central London and we very much look forward to working together with Mace and CBRE to deliver this new London landmark.”

Mace COO for Construction, Gareth Lewis, said: “It’s a complex and challenging project and we will be drawing upon our extensive experience in this field to create a high-value, high-rise development that leaves a lasting legacy for London.”

They're worried this building might get listed in the near future after No 1 Poultry received Grade II* status. So stripping out all of its postmodernist facade will ensure this building will never get listed.

Heathrow names seven firms for airport design



Seven firms have been contracted by Heathrow to design plans for the airport’s sustainable expansion.

The group – Amec Foster Wheeler, Arup, Atkins, Grimshaw, Mott MacDonald, Jacobs and Quod – will now be known as the Integrated Design Team.

The seven teams have each been awarded 4-year term contracts.

The appointment of the IDT follows the announcement of the partners in the Programme Client Team in March. These included: Arup, CH2M, MACE and Turner & Townsend.

Barry Weekes, Head of Design at Heathrow, said: “With their institutional knowledge of Heathrow, and proven record in building complex infrastructure projects, the members of the Integrated Design Team will allow us to hit the ground running to deliver Heathrow expansion.

“Their appointment is a significant milestone in what will be a fast paced design and engineering schedule. We are now well on our way to delivering Britain’s new runway, providing the additional capacity our country needs to maintain its place in the world as a prosperous, outward looking trading nation.”
