Tall buildings in the City
My walk to work is really going to change over the next few years.

Allies and Morrison have released images of their new skyscraper for Great Portland Estates, which has just gone in for planning. It will be on Bishopsgate just south of Camomile St, replacing some existing stuff, and includes a nice corporate plaza which they claim will be an "active public realm".

And Hammerson are moving forward with Foster & Partners to develop yet more of the north side of the City, actually breaking the boundary by buying some land off cash-strapped Hackney to add to their Norton Folgate sites. They've stuck with Fosters (who designed their controversial Bishops Square development just down the road). Expect a 40 storey tower which, interestingly, will have not only offices, but a hotel and apartments on top. They've also got the Bishopsgate Goodsyard to come, to complete their monopoly over the northern City Fringe.
