The neon lights are on! They were cycling last night. Only the tope now has been litten, although according to the renders the neon should go down the whole tower, lets hope they haven't scratched that plan.

Here's some pictures and a video from wawd in the London forum:

I do like these towers, but I don't think they fit in too well wit the existing buildings...also, they seem to have been in a state of 'almost completeness' for ages now!

Perhaps one of the cognoscenti here who might be up on architectural trends could help me identify this style? Is it International style?

I like it.. yeah, the neon atop the building is a little too Miami but it does stand out when none of the other buildings around it have it too. Very sleek. I could see myself living out of one of those flats.

Pan Pen Valuations

This is going out to all Pan Pen Purchasers. How are your valuations going, i have just received mine back from Colliers and it does not look good. From the price i purchased on launch day the valuer has put a price on my property ú70.000 below what i paid. This is a disaster and i have contacted Ballymore and they are aware of the situation although they could not quite believe it. Approx 70% of the purchases will have valuations done through Colliers so as you can imagine Ballymore are very concerned with this. This is my first of two purchases on PP so i could be well out of pocket on this, what we need to find out as owners is, are there anybody else in the same boat as us. I think Ballymore are trying to get all the Valuations from Colliers and then they are going to contest them. As owners we need to all stick together as it will certainly be strength in numbers as Ballymore cannot afford for 70% of customers to pull out.

Any views would be very welcome

Don't you think the habitants of the taller floors of the tallest tower will complain about the lights of the neons on top of the shortest tower?

Tough...your a speculator, suck it up, this time you lost, deal with it.

Homes are for living in, not for profit.

You can see all the lies in this render now... just like always, and we're always fooled.

Neon lighting? I dont think so.
Balconies lit as brightly as windows? Not physically possible.
Acres of crystal clear uninterrupted glass... not after a few post permission planning application tweaks, nope, now its big chunky plastic edged green upv... sigh...

Umm, there is neon lighting.

And the balconies aren't lit because no-one lives there yet :s

Indeed, the neon lights are quite clear in the pics above - the verticles aren't lit, but they have been tested, and they do exist.

I don't see any lies
