Herzog & de Meuron's 'Shardettes' towers face the chop


Great example of the power of manipulation with a local developer with a history of clashes with Southwark having organized a anti tower campaign based of false renders and models and is now extending his tendrils to stop any significant development around London Bridge. What makes it worse is the way Southwark have caved into his demands and makes a mockery of urban development. Guys has been looming in view for at least thirty years. A policy that promotes tall buildings around such a busy interchange at London Bridge which has been policy in the London plan for years can be jettisoned with a well organised malicious campaign.I’m surprised he hasn’t campaigned for the Shard to be demolished. Well done Southwark Councillors.
