My first post!
There's a substantial development underway, just north of the Old Street roundabout, and I haven't been able to find any discussion of it. It's close the the currently-abandoned Eagle House site.
When complete in summer 2012, it will comprise:
- 680 student rooms
- Office space
- Retail space
- 250-room hotel (I think Premier Inn)
There isn't much information to be found on the internet, but you can see some renderings here:

The groundworks appear to be complete across the site, and the hotel segment is progressing quickly. At the very least, it will hide the horrendous Cable & Wireless building behind the site
