great stuff - it seems everything seems to be coming together in what can only be described as London's construction boom. More renders of Rogers' scheme would be great - seen so few so far, but what I've seen, I've liked.

Feasible to have both Riverside South and Heron Quays West under construction the same time, with the Ballymore 44 storey resi tower at NPW rising at the same time. Cripes!

No Crossrail stopping this baby, I hope they keep the design the same. It will put the cream on Canary Wharf.

So we should be seeing an application/renders/details of the actual scheme soon then?

I'm chuffed that this project should be underway before the end of next year, thats 2-3 years earlier than I expected!

I guess the low vacancy rates in CW have caused RS and HQW to be brought forward. If you remember it was previously thought that RS would be built in 2010 and HQW in 2013, but now it looks like its 2008/2009 for both schemes

It makes sense, its obvious North Quay isn't going to be built until crossrail is sorted out. Build HQW first and keep the CW office expansion on track. I also hope they keep the Roger's design, which in my opinion, was world class.

If they do keep that design then by 2010 we may have 5 Rogers towers under constuction.

Wowsers in trousers indeed! What amazing potential this area is on course to have, hopefully the battle for the best cluster is really going to heat up over the next 10 years when hopefully all or most of these designs are sprouting up..

2 renderings showing location, massing and height of the Rogers scheme in pre-planning.

oh sweeet - they will connect the riverside south towers to the main cluster (when viewed from the north/south). And will provide even more density...crikey, its gonna be packed.

They kind of mirror the riverside south towers in the way they are different heights and joined by a smaller building in the middle

In terms of the amount of skyscrapers in such close proximity to each other it will be packed - especially when viewed from a distance, as i implied in the post

woah it'll be interesting for likes of forumer rs2 with RS, HQW and 22 Marshwall all possibly being built at the same time in such close vicinity. (it might just feel a bit Dubai-esque there in a few years time )

Yeah, but I've never seen any daytime renderings.

Yeah, it may look like depending on the view you take. But the models are 214m and 155m tall. The previous consented scheme is 130m aod.

Very good news indeed if these get through for us and for CW's intentions. I understand why they are anxious to put these designs forward. However, I was under the impression Tower 1 of North Quay would go ahead earlier than expected regardless of Corssrail. If however it means they postpone the whole North Quay scheme until after crossrail and in the mean while get another full blown project going, that is Heron Quays West then i'll open up with open arms!
