LONDON | St. George Wharf Tower | 181 M / 594 FT | 49 FLOORS

Quote:
St George's Wharf is the first tower in London to be topped with a wind turbine which will provide power for all the towers public lighting.
Other environmental technology employed includes heat pump technology removing the heat from naturally drawn water to provide heating for the apartments. Triple glazing will provide sound-proofing and heat-loss/gain as will thermal blinds between the glazing. The result will be the tower will use one third of the energy of a similar building.
St Georges Wharf Tower if built will be the tallest wholly residential tower in the U.K and the second tallest in Europe after Turning Turso in Sweden.
The tower is the final part of a scheme, the rest of which has been completed and sold out. Construction for the tower was originally planned to start in 2003.
The scheme has been revised twice following feedback from the Commission for Architecture and the Built Environment and Lambeth Council. Despite meeting all the requirements the latest design has been refused planning permission by Lambeth. It was supported by the Mayor of London, Ken Livingstone who threatened the council with legal action. The developer successfully appealed to the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister winning an eventual planning inquiry

Yesterday



I found that the older St. George Wharf towers look a lot better in person than in photos, or at least the impression I had from them in photos. The grounds around the buildings is quite nice, with gardens and paving stones which have a great texture to them. The appearance of the towers reminds me of a set of towers in Vancouver called Citygate, which I have always liked as well.

Based on what I saw last time I was there, I'd have to agree with you. Although I wouldn't quite say I like the five of them, but they are way too harshly criticized. I don't like the part with the light-colored textures (perhaps a modified design with more glass and a little bit of bright trim on the edges would have worked better), but I love how the five of them jut out so much. You're also right about the grounds surrounding it, it's quite nice.

Totally, I was thinking some tacky development in Shanghai or some other Chinese city.
