Richard Rogers Partnership has received the go-ahead for its gateway tower for London's Paddington Basin development.

The 30-storey Grand Union building was given the thumbs up from Westminster City Council last Thursday. The £300 million scheme aims to provide a new landmark for the city as well as a focal point for the development of the blighted west London area. However, progress on the project will be held up until developer Chelsfield has pre-let the building. And Westminster's head of planning Carl Powell has made clear that the council's support for the tower will not pave the way for a rash of tall buildings in the borough.
