On what has been on of the most up and down weeks London and its residents have experienced in recent times, a small tidbit to raise a glass to:

From CityOffices.com

Ballymore to press on in Docklands
Following London's Olympic win, developer Ballymore has taken a full page advertisement in today's press highlighting its plans to build 3.5m sq ft of offices, by 2012, at Arrowhead Quay, Crossharbour, New Providence Wharf, Peninsula Reach and Wood Wharf in London's docklands.

If anyone has seen the ad in any of the broadsheets etc, confirmation would be great. Its fine news - 3.5m sq ft. Lawks. The East side of the Canary Wharf estate will look great with Arrowhead and Millharbour on the way up.

P.S - Hope everyone in London got home okay - for once, yesterday for a day for cyclists!

Liberty International unit gets consent for Southwark and London redevelopment project

LONDON (AFX) - Liberty International plc said its Capital & Counties unit has received consent from the London Borough of Southwark to redevelop King's Reach, an office, retail and residential complex on Stamford Street, London SE1.

The proposals for which consent has been granted will include the recladding of the existing tower and extension by a further four floors.

New retail units and cafes will be introduced, replacing the existing Milroy Walk shopping arcade.

The existing low rise office building will be replaced by a new "office village", with the replacement buildings capable of offering floor plates of up to 24,000 square feet, Liberty added.

Love that 18 storey tower. Especially if the actual balconies are coloured differently



From that Wharf Article posted earlier in the thread....


This is what Millwall Dock should be developed into. Albeit with different shapes, heights and styles.

WjFoxy you care to do a render of all major proposed towers on this picture. I think it would look amazing. Only if you are willing however.



P.S I dont care much for Birmingham construction at the moment. London is buzzing, Its amazing. and every single project is worthy of awards. Its fanatastic.

I love this.

It'll be a race between 1 Millharbour and St Georges Wharf. St Georges Wharf is taller and is, I believe, also purely residential. But 1 Millharbour could be built first.

So, if it's up first, then yes 1 Millharbour will be, at least for a while, the tallest residential in Europe.

Incidentally...

In this 'Full Summary of Projects' thread, is this just for towers or for all major projects? If so, maybe mentioning that small thing they announced last week - something over in Stratford for some sort of sporting event, might also be worthwhile? (although Wembley and T5 don't seem to be listed either).
