Pas vraiment. c'en est au quinzieme, et si dans un premier temps je pensais qu'un l'assemblage plus substanciel du cladding que sur deux etages donnerait de l'alure a la tour, je ne suis toujours pas convaincu.
Il faut a mon avis maintenant attendre la finition totale de la tour pour un second jugement mais je suis presque sure deja que je preferait l'admirer au tomber de la nuit ou alors la nuit quand la tour sera une autre nuee de lumieres se fondant dans la skyline de CW.

Manuel - In the previous thread you mentioned the possibility of Dartford and Thurrock being annexed - is this actually being discussed or is it something in the background at the GLA?

Yeah it has long been discussed. Initially, when the GLA was re-created back in 2000, these 2 local authorities were supposed to be in.

I know that is something more discussed than ever now. But I reckon it'll take some time.

There is some info on this on the Grapevine news London section website.

Heathrow pourrait disparaitre...

BBC NEWS

Heathrow 'should be phased out'

Heathrow: A "truly great planning catastrophe"
Heathrow should be replaced with a new international airport to the east of London, a planning charity claims.

The Town and County Planning Association argues 30,000 homes could be built on the "catastrophically" planned west London site instead.

A Thames Estuary hub would stop plane noise over London and further expansion of Heathrow displacing villages.

Lord Soley, who backs a third Heathrow runway, said moving the airport would mean too many job loses for the area.

He told BBC Radio 4's Today programme: "The more we move investment to the East - the Thames Estuary or wherever - the greater the problems for the west of London.

'Environmental limits'

"There are 70,000 jobs at Heathrow and another 100,000 dependent on it."

In the planning charity's paper, Heathrow's 60-year history was condemned as "a series of minor planning disasters that together make up one of the country's truly great planning catastrophes."

It also said the swap should happen over the next century.

But Lord Soley said Heathrow should be looking to match the capabilities of other continental airports over the next 10 to 20 years.

"You can fit a third runway in there - everybody accepts that. The argument is 'can you do it within the environmental limits laid down', and the evidence is 'yes, you can'.

'Logistically impossible'

"If we don't, then what we have to do is plan for the decline and closure of Heathrow in the next 10 to 20 years, not 40, and that would be a catastrophe for the west London region and profoundly serious for the rest of Britain."

The report also said a high-speed rail link from the new site would be an alternative to "environmentally damaging short-haul flights".

The report's authors, Tony Hall and Sir Peter Hall, said passengers who fumed at the "long taxiing operations culminating in a take-off queue, or at long periods spent in the four holding areas" might well echo Dr Johnson's famous remark about a dog walking on its hind legs.

"It's not that it is done well, but you are surprised to find it is done at all," wrote Dr Johnson.

They also said it would be "logistically impossible" for the airport to be phased out in a short time scale of five or 10 years.

A housing development at Heathrow could be worth more than £6.8bn, they said.

^ I've always supported a new airport east of the city. The plans for it looked good too.
Maybe someday...

Une révision du permis de construire a été déposée par le promoteur de la Power Station (Battersea).

Globalement, peu de changement, quelques altérations relatives à la hauteur, la plupart des batiments annexes voient leur hauteur révisée à la hausse autour de 45-75m, notamment l'hotel parallèle à la voie ferrée.

Miam, la tour ne semble pas droite, elle vrille sur elle même grâce à l'effet procuré par le revêtement!!!


Sinon, l'impact du Willis building sur la skyline se confirme (3 étages du corps en béton restent à monter). Le revêtement apparaîtra à sa base dès juillet prochain

Hmm. Tu devrais poster ce panorama sur le forum de Londres.

Côté bonne nouvelle (je me méfie des déclarations orales de Ken): Les minutes du Board Meeting de Transport for London indique qu'ils ont conlcu une prelet de bureaux dans le Shard London Bridge. Les détails de l'accord seront publiés par Tfl en juin.

Tfl prendrait 27,000 sqm aux étages inférieurs (ceux qui donnent une magnifique vue sur un dépot de bus, une caserne de pompiers, et le Guys Hospital orné d'un magnifique survêtement en béton armé gris-noir), à prix "compétitif".

Ce prelet permet au promoteur d'obtenir les près bancaires nécessaires pour conclure les contrats pour la construction de la tour. Skanska (qui a construit 30 Ste Mary Axe) obtiendrait le contrat (à vérifier).

La démolition du bâtiment actuel (Soutwark Towers, occupés par PwC) commencera début 2007.
