Taking down the Battersea Power Station chimneys seems to be taking an age. Only the one down thus far. How long have they been at it now? Is it really that difficult and painstaking a process?

Demolition of the other three chimneys will commence simultaneously once the first chimney rebuild reaches the half way point.

  • Architect: Squire and Partners

A high court challenge against the Shell Centre has been dismissed, paving the way for its construction:

High Court rejects Shell Centre legal challenge
Building | 26 February 2015

The High Court has dismissed a legal challenge to secretary of state Eric Pickles’ decision to approve the controversial £1.3bn Shell Centre scheme on the South Bank, despite concerns over the way the inquiry was handled.

Justice Collins did not accept that there was a strong enough case to reject the decision by the communities secretary, even though he found serious errors in the conduct of the planning inspector.

The £1.3bn proposal feature eight buildings ranging from five to 37 storeys with the scheme comprising offices, retail, leisure and close to 900 homes.
