Oh man, I hope they don't value engineer the facade all to shit. This thing was absolutely spectacular as originally proposed. I want to see it built, but I'd be willing to wait if it means we won't see something that's severely compromised.

Apartments needed. Speculative office spaces got too risky, they should increase its mixed-use purpose. Maybe that's what the redesign's about?

It's been on hold for about two years. They resume briefly at the end of last year or the beggininig of this one, only for about two months, and then again on hold until the present. Financing problems I think.

London's future skyline in doubt

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-20357816

Quote:
The tallest skyscraper planned for the City of London may never become reality, its lead architect admits - as a BBC investigation raises questions over the capital's future skyline.

Amid the clamour that accompanied the completion of the Shard, something was amiss.

The UK's tallest skyscraper did not have a single financial tenant in place.

It was a far cry from the opening of the Gherkin in 2004 - all of that building's floors had been leased.

Now a BBC Inside Out study has found numerous major developments across the City that have run into problems.

LONDON'S LANDMARK COMMERCIAL DEVELOPMENTS

Cancelled or awaiting tenants before construction can go on:

The Pinnacle
100 Bishopsgate
Principle Place
Wall Place
Can of Ham
One Trinity

Empty or mostly empty:

The Shard
The Place
Cannon Place
Walbrook Building
Heron Tower

The £1 billion Pinnacle skyscraper on Bishopsgate, which had its ascent into the London skyline arrested at the seventh floor last year after the developer failed to pre-let enough office space, could be scrapped and re-built from the ground up as an ‘austerity tower’, according to trade magazine Building

Zoiks.

Similar article in the FT today. I think I'd prefer no tower at all to an austerity tower.
