Jef..you know when you read something and it makes sense..then you read it again and it doesnt...What does it mean? Shell and core stage? Am I just being thick?


No 2. Shell & Core Stage 5th MArch 2007 85 weeks

So that means all cores, Steelwork and Floors, lifts and Cladding?

Shell and core is the whole project I think, if you notice it says 85 weeks, which is just how long the whole project will take overall (March 2007 - May 2008)

16 and 26 storeys (previous consented scheme was 25 storey), 113m above ground level (previous consented scheme was 112m).

link to revised planning application, planning and design statement (8 March, permit was given for starting construction before full pp is granted to the revised scheme):
http://194.201.98.213/WAM/showCaseFi...mber=PA/07/347

I have only found renderings that shows the massing:

Two things this development will do that's positive - hide the godawful 'hut' roof of Discovery Dock from the view of the Wharf from Central London, and secondly, pull Pan Peninsula into the Canary Wharf cluster.

And that's about it.

I agree.

It looks dull. But note again these rendering shows the massing. I hope the detailed renderings will be more interesting.

All I want to know is does this plan still have the pearlescent paint?

If so it will be the only skyscraper to have this in the whole world. This is the clincher for me... the original planning application had this. I've asked this question twice on this thread already and no-one has been able to answer this question!

ok I would much rather this be built than nothing at all...........but i have to say i really would not mind a few more boring boxes in the city as it will balance out the more creative buildings. The last thing Canary Warf needs is more boring boxes, god is just one curve or interesting feature to much to ask for? Why are they trying to design everthing to look the same. I am all for a structured, minamilist skyline but it's not working, we need a little variety here. Ok now i've got that of my chest I still would MUCH rather this be built than nothing at all.

Sorry, no special lighting.

The scheme is actually similar to Ropemaker Place - with two interlocked buildings with specific facade to cope with noise from DLR.

Very uninspiring. Ballymore has not dared to go taller. All renderings to show "look, it does not impact the skyline, it will hardly be seen from Greenwhich, from riverside, etc.".
