Planning Permission has been granted yesterday for the revised scheme and
the accelerated development programme (construction can start before all the details relative to materials, etc. are given). Ballymore has indicated construction will start in March for delivery in 2009.

I still don't get what design it's going to be. Are there ribbons, fins or whatever? There seem to be several evaluation designs in the planning docs.

This project can be summed up in 4 words - boring but quite tall.

indeed. Heron Quays West please. If only.

We've plenty enough sexy stuff going on to appreciate that at the end of the day these are similar functional offices space. We're not going to have world renown architects and stunning schemes like HQW, 122 Leadenhall or Bishopsgate Tower proposed for every corner. I feel more that the number of cranes in CW and the number of boxes going up reflects how monumentally successful London is at the moment, and it looks to be probably getting better and better as we build to the Olympics.

I have walked past the site many times. Only learned today that they are building on the site so its bonus. I'm a big fan of Canary Wharf and the reason is because the quality of the materials thay use. From the bins to the trees to the glass and steel. The estate is planed out very well with the Tube station linking the malls and the green areas to eat your lunch. Some of the scrapers maybe plane but CITI GROUP, HSBC and CABOT towers make up for that. If your ever rode up on the escalaters from the tube at night and see all these boxes lit up (amazing)

Does the redesign still have the pearlescent paint? If it doesn't then this is another waste of space for Canary Wharf.

This is very true and understated by us lot I think...its very plush around there..being a plant enthusiast, even the planting schemes are high quality.

Agreed. I think the building's are great too. I love the city, but there's not much that's better than a group of tall boxes lit up at night.

Totally agree CW is fantastic at night - also agree that the build and materials quality make a big difference.
