Towering inferno

  • Comment

London is going tall again. At Elephant and Castle, Foster, Yeang et al will add to Southwark's burgeoning skyline, while Broadway Malyan continues to work on the 366m whopper at London Bridge. Foster will shortly get a decision from the City planning committee on his Swiss Re scheme, while over in west London the Richard Rogers Partnership and Nicholas Grimshaw and Partners will be doing battle of a kind with rival 40 storey-plus towers at Paddington Station. Westminster Council has commissioned a study on where skyscrapers should be allowed in the borough, having abandoned its old policy of seeking to demolish tall buildings rather than give them permission. I imagine Paddington has emerged as a suitable location.
