1 Blackfriars Road (Mirax-Beetham Tower)

http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=400279

It had a significant height reduction after noisy interventions by the heritage lobby, the Royal Park authority and neighbouring Westminster council. It eventually gained planning permission but the subsequent delay from the lengthy public inquiry pushed it into the period of global recession and it has been fairly quiet ever since. Same sort of story as with many London towers

Its Beetham London otherwise known as the Jumeirah Tower (1 Blackfriars Road).

The site has been cleared and ready for construction for years now, it's turned into a jungle behind the hoardings. Not entirely sure what the hold-up is, I'm sure someone will know on here.
