The Sunday Times news desk thinks that Piano and Rogers are now waging a north-south battle of the towers, given the RRP 45-storey job at Paddington. Some people think that Paddington is probably in west London, but no doubt that is just a finicky detail. However, who knows where the latest initiative by David Marks and Julia Barfield will end up. Hugh Pearman's scoop in the very same Sunday Times suggested that the slim trio of residential towers only need a 1ha site. Perhaps north London really will get a high-riser after all.
