well there you have it, i went down to the site today, or as close as i could which isn't that hard since it's right next to the [edit]road.
Right opposite the main core, there's a hoarding on which features tech details about the building, a render, and a 'progress log' that describes in pretty simple lingo what goes on at the site. What is going up right now is BP3, at 11 storeys high.
Sorry no pics forgot the cam. Main core is a big fat mama when looked at from any angle.

great photos jef - wicked view from up there. Wood Wharf will be a cracking transformation, will really open up the eastern side of the Isle of Dogs when walking through the Wharf. Looks like the industrial units are all still open though - construction wasn't due till 2008 was it?

Yes, it looks tall for a low-rise. Still I have no idea of what he looks like, except the 5-storeys podium wing.
Two additional buildings will soon start construction:

5 Churchill (east/right of Barclays) and 15 CS (west/left of Barclays) about 17 storeys high each:

okay - downloaded this from the Canary Wharf website, and whilst it doesn't seem to show the redesigned element, it still gives a good impression of the massing around Churchill Place.



its missing Riverside South - but expect that will come in due course. You can also make out the redddish lowrise element which will eventually be the site of Heron Quays West I believe.

This a massing model of what CW is likely to look like around 2010 (work in progress).
10 CP is missing and I have been guessing the design of 20CP and added fantasy texure. I will also refine 15 CS in due time.
Note how small are PP and Marsh Wall compared to RS.

I guess you are omitting Heron Quays West and North Quay for the moment as these aren't going to be likely until 2012 at the earliest? RS will be a huge chunk of floorspace for CWG to absorb, plus the construction cost of all the Churchill Place buildings, so all these current schemes should keep them occupied for the next 4-5 years at least?

Wood Wharf will also start providing some more competition should pp and funding proceed without problems.

Good model by the way - this google earth malarky is rather impressive.

The big core as you put it is now visable from many places and there is still a couple of floors to go

Thanks Luke.
The big core is approximately 70m high because it is now as high as 20 Canada Square.
The hole is the site of 10 CP. I presume they will built it up to street level.

from flickr, Pan Peninsula is behind Exchange tower (see the cranes).
The core of 20 CP can be seen before Barclays Tower, see right of the picture. Scroll -->
Also works at Ability Place and Crossharbour.
Willis is also visible.
