One thing that has really annoyed me with the Canary Wharf proposals is the lack of a cohesive, all-included rendering of how it will look like with all the proposed towers. I mean, the City has that now famous view across the thames showing all the proposed skyscrapers in their correct positions, but no-one has yet to do a decent render of the CW cluster with all the proposed towers included. Once again, I'm looking to you Wjfox!

:cheers:

I'm not sure if the 2006 had so much density but it did look pretty similar. I doubt it will look anything like that rendering pretty soon, CW have put all construction on hold at the moment.

Columbus isn't going to happen - is it??
I think we'll almost certainly see a skyscraper on that site eventually - whether it's the original design for Colombus Tower or not, who knows. But as we've discussed before, it's a prime piece of real estate, just a stone's throw from a major business and financial district, and has planning permission for a 237m building. Think about it. Imagine if the building was converted to be entirely hotel/luxury apartments...... a developer would stand to make hundreds of millions of pounds in profit. The lease on the current site has been extended to 2013, I believe. However, it wouldn't surprise me if the site was bought up and developed before then.

However, there's also the Crossrail issue with the Columbus site. I doubt anyone will be willing to take over that site until Crossrail actually sort out what they're going to be doing underneath it - if the darn thing is actually ever built!

the one thing missing from CW is a pinnacle... There are 200m+, 300m+ towers there. There should also be a 500m+ Pinnacle. :D


Toronto is best example!
