I think the name "landmark" was badly chosen. It's just an ordinary building.

First picture is magic, I really like the London skyline. Does anyone know if there is another high rise proposed in this cluster?

there are several towers planned within the cluster - most of them of a higher quality design than the current crop - the ones most likely to go ahead at the moment are Riverside South (see the blue and yellow cranes in the foreground of the pics above -and a close up below) - the basement works are well advanced and it has been recently announced that JP Morgan will move their European Headquaters there - 2 towers 236m/189m | 45/37 fl



the thread..http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...=408716&page=6

there are also several apartment towers planned - the yellow cranes to the right on the pics above are currently constructing apartment buildings the tallest of which is around 24 floors

There's also a pub right next door to the Landmark Towers that has had a 209m Norman Foster resi tower proposed on it in the last few weeks.

If you look at the Pic Chest posted, in this year alone a tower just under 200m has gone in for planning, along with an hotel/resi tower of 145m to the right of it with HQW (3 towers up to 200m) having been approved. Also, as mentioned a 209m resi/hotel tower for a site to the right of the picture. As well as the RS towers Chest outlined.

There would be nothing to see, just abandoned empty wharehouse's and docks....it was a wasteland....a remnant of the 1960's and 1970's decline.
