Latest news is that construction will start in mid-2008.

Here's a photo I took today at the New London Architecture Exhibition. It's the tower in the foreground -

Nice design, the shape makes it look slim but tall.

I like it a lot. The wind turbine acts well as a crown and the glass looks like it will be nice. Would have prefered some bulk at the base but that's just me. Would love this one in Melb.

You'd think it wouldn't, but the crown works well with the design. It's in proportion, which isn't the case on a lot of radical designs in the mid-east and Asia.

Has nobody noticed that the name of this thread is wrong? It says 'St George's Wharf' when it should read 'St George Wharf'.

pretty good considering london is not a city I would associate with high quality skyscraper design.

Maaaybe it's started - we'll see if this leads to anything in the next few weeks; at any rate it looks like something more substantial than landscaping work is going on -

Maybe it's just preparatory work - but given that the serious construction work at the other side of this huge development has just finished, now would be the time to get going, if they're willing to brave the recession. Something's happening at any rate.

This curious building next door in the existing development (which is still fenced off) is, I suspect, destined to be a show flat / marketing suite for the new tower. It's the same size and shape as half the tower, it doesn't really fit in the existing development (blocks the riverside access, and the view from quite a few of the existing flats), and developer St George built a similar free-standing show flat at the Imperial Wharf development (which is still standing, but probably not for long now that they've sold all the flats).

They look shit in real life and up close. Lumpy, sprawling, sterile, cheap and dated. I used to think they were awesome when I first saw them in 'Building' mag when I was 15 or so... but now I cant bare them. i think the tower will almost certainly be shit too.

I know what you mean about them looking shit and cheap, probably coz they were designed nigh on 15years ago and has taken 10plus years to build, so they're a design from the mid90s built in the late 2000's. Hopefully the tower will be designed with up-to-date details rather than having sat on a drawing board for 10 years!
