^^ Indeed!

2007 will be the START of Londons skyscraper boom. No doubt by the start of next year London will have ANOTHER 5 or so 150m+ proposals!

And btw - British Land are one of the most committed and reliable developers in London. They're not the kind of people who mess around with these major announcements. If they say this project will start in 2007, then it will start in 2007 ;)

It sure sounds a strickingly super skyscraper seemingly set to start soon......sorry, I couldn't resist a bit of alliteration :D

Great news again for London, this should help quash the multitude of people who moan about 'well most of thse probably won't go up'...how do you like them apples :baeh3:

2007 and 2008 look to be years of high construction, with Leadenhall, Heron, St George's Wharf, LBT, and Pan Peninsula Tower (started construction I beleive) all guaranteed to go up. Plus possibly Minerva tower and Beetham, with Bishopsgate tower looking very likely get approval later this year with a 2007/2008 start date, then you've also got quite a few more towers at CW looking to get approval like Riverside South, North Quay tower 1, North Quay tower 2, Heron Quays West....not to mention random skyscrapers thrown into the mix like Elephant and Castle (Multiplex), and Vauxhall..... AND that's not counting all the other proposals that have come recently (tower next to Swiss Re for example, and that not-so-nice one for Fenchurch street) and many more are likely to come in the near future!


Phew, Good God, it's exausting just thinking about it. Is there one area of London not experiencing regeneration, construction of a stadium or construction of a skyscraper??? What say we knock down St Paul's Cathedral to make way for a new batch of skyscrapers eh? ;)

:cheers:

This rendering will look nice with the new 20 Fenchurch st tower added in plus Heron tower
Er, and a certain 288m tower as well ;)

Plus, Minerva would appear just off the right edge. Broadgate might be visible from this view as well, I'm not sure. Then of course, turn 180 degrees and you'll see London Bridge Tower.

This view is from the Monument to the Great Fire of London, for those who don't know - accessible to the public, probably the best vantage point in London (apart from the London Eye), and only £2 to go up :cheers:
