Whilst viewing the Willingdale Associates website (ref their plans for a new tidal barrier and road/rail tunnel under the Thames at Canvey http://www.metrotidal.com/
) I spotted a project they call Waterloo Trilogy
. This seems to be intended for the corner opposite the Old Vic (i.e. where the bookshop is) Go to http://www.willingale.com/Projects.html
and click on the thumbnail picture that looks like a blue handled vegetable peeler. The 'peeler' bit will be the roof mounted wind turbines, somewhat similar to the 'razor' development at E&C.
They describe it as "a ground breaking 200-400 room sustainable hotel scheme at the heart of Waterloo".
This may just be speculative wishful thinking (a bit like the Canvey tunnel), but indicates further plans for tall buildings around Waterloo.
Sorry this is all I know - perhaps others can say more?
