Happy New Year from a lurker, and thanks to SE9 for making this thread the most exciting in the entire universe, and probably parallel universes, too.

I first moved to London as a callow undergraduate in 1981. At that time London's population was still in decline - it bottomed out in 1985. And you could SENSE that decline, vast tracts of the city were deserted, places like Borough, Spitalfields, King's Cross, the Docklands, were sordid and decaying wastelands.

And now? Incredible. No western city has seen such a transformation since New York in the early-mid 20th century, and before that Paris under Haussmann.

Marvellous.

Upper Riverside will likely make an enormous impression. But also a very monotonous one, and perhaps it'll even seem sort of dystopic. I'd prefer if they'd alternate with materials and shapes there, and actually create urban perimeter blocks at the ground, instead of isolated towers.

On a sidenote: The fastest urbanized western city after NYC is probably Berlin under the last generation of Prussian kings, the German Emperors and urban planner James Hobrecht (see Hobrecht-Plan), throughout the 19th and early 20th century. The pace of Berlin's growth from a regional residence town to the world's number 4 was utterly incredible. Blame the wars for throwing it way back, though it's really getting back on track in the 21st century.

The Upper Riverside and Lambeth Palace Library are definitely going to look amazing. I don't normally go for architecture that relies heavily on brick. But Lambeth Palace has a real charm to it.

3500 homes in the Canada Water plan seems low compared to the size of the site. Surely they could increase density here a little more seeing as London has such an acute shortage of houses?

Multiplex scoops landmark £1bn Nine Elms scheme



Chinese developer Dalian Wanda Group has selected Multiplex to build its £1bn Nine Elms development near Vauxhall in London.

Multiplex is the third contractor to take on the project after two previous preferred bidders failed to agree a final price.

Interserve was originally selected to deliver the mixed-use project comprising two towers reaching 42 and 58 storeys. But the firm and its joint venture partner China State Construction Engineering Corporation abandoned the project in April.

Balfour Beatty then beat Multiplex on the project rebid, but also stepped away two months ago after failing to agree the contract price.

Tim Gawthorn, Director at Wanda One (UK) said: “We are delighted to announce the appointment of Multiplex as our main contractor for the delivery of One Nine Elms, which on completion will create 437 high quality residential apartments, a 5 star Wanda Vista hotel, world-class amenities and public spaces for the community to enjoy.

“Following the EU Referendum, this important announcement further demonstrates our commitment to deliver an iconic mixed-use development in the heart of London.”

Ashley Muldoon, CEO at Multiplex for Europe, Middle East, and Canada said: “We are delighted to be working with Wanda globally, supporting them to deliver in Australia – and now in the UK on this prestigious project.”

The 1.14m sq. ft One Nine Elms development brings to market 437 homes, as well as the first Wanda Vista Hotel to open outside of China.

The twisting tower in the same photo proves how one single tower could change the way we perceive the skyline.

Evolving plans have seen the number of residential units increase from 2,500 to 3,500. Every chance that it may increase further.

London Mayor calls in first housing schemes

London Mayor Sadiq Khan has stepped in for the first time since being elected to take over two major planning applications in the capital.

His intervention on the applications – one in Haringey and the other in Harrow – will allow City Hall experts to help create more suitable proposals and secure hundreds of genuinely affordable homes.

Haringey Council had rejected an application for up to 505 homes, including a 21-storey tower at Hale Wharf in Tottenham, over concerns that it would be too tall and would adversely impact Green Belt land.
