I'm just telling it like it is mate.

This section is for buildings that are PLANNED or U/C over 300m tall. Demolition is starting soon, construction begins early next year. If you think that is 'a million years time' then I think you may need your head checked.

Where do you suggest it goes for god sakes? If this thread wasn't in the world section then we wouldn't be able to keep the people updated who don't want to go to the UK forums.

If you don't like that it's here, ignore it, don't come in and bitch about something so easily avoided

Foster is great indeed! But don't you think Renzo Piano can be amazing too, from time to time?

I cant imagine what a supertal would be like in such a Historical lowrise city such as London. Even the current Highrises dont really seem to suit the landscape of the city. Hopefully this will fit in.

Calm down man, he was just wondering (after all previous timetables have stated construction should have started)
And there is only so much patience we can have, it's been years and years and years since this was approved, let alone proposed.

Sorry but it gets a bit annoying when people come along making silly demands like 'take it off'. We, hell even the developers can't help the fact that this project has faced so many delays. Now something is actually happening and the mood regarding this project should be better, not bought down with comments like that. What I posted was actually good news. Shows they are working to get this going as fast as possible.

Concrete core, steel frame, triple-layer glass cladding.

This one can definitely be changed from 'App' to 'Demo'.
