It is a bit hard to keep tabs with all the various projects going on, but I thought I’d go over a few of the projects that have either caught my eye, have scale or are a bit different.

Smugglers Way
The first exemplifies advancements of the New London Vernacular (NLV) style of construction in London which is focused around the heavy use of brick.

Peninsula Place
Knight Dragon have released images of their mixed-use development by Santiago Calatrava planned for above North Greenwich tube station. It will replace the 1999 Foster station with a substantial station concourse and retail environment, and three residential towers. There will be a new pedestrian bridge to span the approaches to the Blackwall Tunnel and connect to developments planned for the western end of the Greenwich Peninsula. A new river pier will also be constructed.

Everything in the following images - with the exception of the O2 - is either under construction or planned; it is one of the largest construction sites in London.

Greenwich Peninsula
To follow on from the proposals for the Peninsula Place development above, the below give a further indication of the vast scale of the Greenwich Peninsula development; several dozen towers, many over 100m (none over 150m due to the proximity to London City Airport) are in the pipeline to be constructed. Most construction is currently focused on the eastern edge of the site.

North Quay Development - 228m, 218m, 208m + 113m
Directly across from Canary Wharf, towers have been planned for the North Quay site for well over a decade. The original plan envisioned two towers of 200m+, however the arrival of Crossrail (the Canary Wharf station is in the dock) meant that the site was utilised to build the station. Now that the site is no longer needed for Crossrail, Canary Wharf have unveiled their plans – by Foster + Partners – for a four-tower development, three of which are above 200m. The towers to the west of the new central podium are residential focused, whilst the office tower will be built to the east.

For those curious, the site to the immediate east is Billingsgate Fish Market; speculation of its relocation has been rife for many years due to its potential for intense development. It is approximately 2-3x the size of the North Quay site, but it is doubtful concrete proposals will emerge until this and Canary Wharf’s Wood Wharf – documented on the previous page – are well under way.

Big fan of the Retro-Futurism. Hope this is a trend in architecture.


The first one has aspects of Victorian Aesthetics fused with Mid-Century Space Age.

London Borough Gets a New Tallest Tower
Quote:
The Inner London borough of Islington has a new tallest building. Designed by Squire and Partners and delivered by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill for Mount Anvil with Clarion Housing, the 117-metre-tall Lexicon tower spreads more than 300 apartments over a 36-storey frame.
WilkinsonEyre Plans 35-Metre Height Increase at 150 Leadenhall
Quote:
A previously approved scheme for a 40-storey stacked tower in the centre of London's skyscraper cluster has been reworked by architect WilkinsonEyre and developers Mitsubishi Estate London and Stanhope. Plans for the 185-metre-tall tower at 150 Leadenhall have now grown in size, with the proponents now seeking a 220-metre skyscraper and an increase in lettable office space from 41,806 to 52,954 square metres.
