Lambeth Approve Doon Street Tower

Coin Street Community Builders have secured the approval of their planned tower at Doon Street from Lambeth Council despite the opposition against the scheme from many quarters.

Designed by Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands the project is a 140 metre tall largely residential tower, the construction of which will fund the leisure, health and education facilities it stands above that Coin Street Community Builders have been trying to secure money to pay for from various governmental bodies for years without luck.

Opposition predictably has come from English Heritage but less predictably from the Commission for Architecture and Built Environment, both of whom are worried about the impact of the scheme from a private members room of the historic Somerset House on the north bank of the River Thames.

Others who have come out against it include Brian Perry, a former architect at Sir Denys Lasdun & Partners who designed the National Theatre claiming a tower next to it was "completely out of proportion."

Ironically for Brian Parry the National Theatre are in favour of the proposals as are a smattering of other cultural venues on the South Bank including the Tate Gallery.

Approved by the planning committee of Lambeth Borough Council last night the scheme now goes up before the Mayor of London, Ken Livingstone who will pass judgement on whether his office should approve it. It then faces its obligatory call-in period to get through first where the Secretary of State for Communities, Hazel Blears, can decide whether it should have a public inquiry held or not.

Whether the likes of English Heritage, still battered from the inquiry into 20 Fenchurch Street they were bounced into, will want a public inquiry or for that matter be able to pay for one, remains to be seen.

Even if they do, Hazel Blears is unlikely to call the Doon Street Tower in for a public inquiry, not least as Beetham's London plans, just a short distance down the road, also got through without further complications.

Following a public inquiry into the suitability of its location, this now has full planning permission.

Unesco is also considering the ranking of the Palace of Westminster which it fears will be blighted by the 43-storey Doon Street tower, which is to be built across the river in Lambeth.
Its interest follows concerns raised by English Heritage in relation to both the £400 million Shard - which English Heritage believes also blights St Paul's Cathedral - and the Doon Street development.

Westminster council described Doon Street as an "act of cultural vandalism" and went to the High Court two years ago in a bid to get planning permission overturned.

Wow, I thought this one was dead in the water. Or maybe the journalists are just using out-of-date planning applications to continue their ridiculous moaning about London's developments. Wouldn't mind this one going up, especially since it has tall structures like the London Eye and Shell Centre nearby, (and that midrise to the bottom left of the Doon Street Tower in the picture above, forgotten its name) so it won't be completely on its own.

Yes but didn't this one get planning permission in 2008, according to wjfox's post? Where's the construction?

Last time when I passed by there (last month?) the site was dead empty.
But then it could all take off all of a sudden. I mean it should. I hope it will.
For the sake of the South Bank

Boring design, but adds more density, which is great
