Since Canary Wharf are running the show now I asume they are going to want to wait until all the Churchill Place and Riverside South buildings are built before they start on these.

It'll probably be sooner thanks to the kerfuffle over North Quay, but it's still at least five years off. The residential element might start sooner. Who knows.

There is a new residential building over by the Churchill Place buildings in those photos.

Looks to be about 115m.

Great project! I looks like the streetlevel is going to be very green, and thats good. And now CW gets its own little arch . CW is so cool when theres so much water around, it could be a venice of skyscrapers. That boat in the second pic, is it already there or is it a part of the render or is going to be put there soon?

I wish cities would build more supertalls in this boxey style - All the pinnacle spirey pretentious messes are fine but there's nothing better than a few supertall boxes all clustered together. Nothing..

There a was thread about this about a month ago, they have plans to build a cruise-ship in CW. It won't go anywhere, it'll just be a floating hotel

Well London will have a cluster of boxes and a cluster of pinnacle spirey pretentious messes in a few years.

So, yeah.

I totally agree with Remusable.
CW box style scrapers look amazing even though they are not supertalls.

I don't fancy that pink part of the new development... It looks nice, but doesn't really belong in CW in my opinion...

It's the residential portion and is needed to create a step down to the lowrise riverfront, and bring a bit of life and vitality to the area.

It makes a nice change and also i think the cladding will prob look a bit conservative like the rest of CW so will fit in nicely.
