Still, I prefer this hole with foundations over the car park that was there before.

Could be because there is no progress. JP Morgan are now moving into a different building on the Wharf. They have announced their intention to continue with this project, but haven't confirmed what they intend to do with the site - continue with building as is, change building design, sell etc.

I don't think there's any indication about when JP Morgan will say something on this one, it could be next month, it could be in a few years.

I really don't see this going ahead as I've said before. Demand in Canary Wharf is on its ass. The only buildings viable on this site now are those with a pre-let and the indications are no company with anything close to wanting this much floorspace is looking as though it'll be coming forward.

Canary Wharf looking at the REIT indications for this year and next says to me it's a dead area for the time being. Our attention is going to be on the City and Stratford for the next couple of years.

That's sad, I don't venture too much into the London forums but I'm also assuming that aside from this, the 237m Columbus Tower, North Quay Towers and the 197m 1 Park Place are also dodos. Pretty sad really given how much potential this part of the city had.

I don't think there have been major changes on that.

Work To Restart On Riverside South

Construction work is due to get underway again on the sprawling Riverside South development in Canary Wharf, which is currently the single largest office development under construction in Europe.

Construction on the massive 335,000 square metre development which will feature the tallest tower in Canary Wharf had taken a pause whilst banking giant JP Morgan decided if they were going to plump for it as their main headquarters or not. With that move now off, and the bank having opted for 25 Bank Street instead, construction has been halted with the foundation slab complete.

The next stage of construction of the Rogers, Stirk, Harbour + Partners design will begin in approximately six months and see the project built up to ground level with the basement floors constructed. This will then give the developers, Canary Wharf and JP Morgan, another opportunity to take stock, and to reconfigure the project further to fit in with the expected economic climate.

The news will hardly come as a surprise to many observers however - Canary Wharf announced at the end of last year it would take two and a half years to build up the project to ground level, and it appears that is a fair approximation of how long it will have taken them. It just goes to show that sometimes pronouncements on development schedules can actually be somewhat on the ball.

Quite boring. Very American -- straight out of Chicago. Pass!

Since it looks so American, they should depict a bunch of depraved Yanks cheering the death of bin Laden in front of this.

I also blame JP Morgan for pulling out. They're merely trying to have NY top London as a financial centre.

This style is very suitable for CW though.

I just need to vent about the Americans. They're on such a power trip right now. It's annoying.

This isn't under construction. They're just building to ground level. This should be moved to proposed.

I don't think its that American. If it was it would probably be on a much larger scale and called something like "The Columbia Centre" lol

Ps I like this tower (s)

Looks stunning with all the waterside landscaping at the base of the tower - I'm happy to wait!
