Yes it's that building. The architect says that '...it fits in...' with what exactly, or does he need Specsavers? There's loads of really ugly beasts at the other end of Blackfriars Road and Stamford Street, is this really the best British Architects can manage, God help us all! Cllr. David Noakes is right to mention the measly 24% social housing. A lot of the Shard is empty, at £200m no-one can afford to live there even at 80% of the market price! How many more, what happened to the 11,000 homes we're supposed to get? Who are the Council and their partners kidding? Southwark will be swallowed up in empty homes, and the jobs will only last whilst they're being built. This is SOUTHWARK, not the CITY OF SOUTHWARK, SOUTHWARK is only 1/32nd of London or will it become a CITY IN THE AIR? Will it finish above the pollution?
You can also play on the computers till you're peuce but the tall buildings WILL cause wind tunnels between them and tall and much shorter buildings, the wind has to go somewhere! Please don't copy the Strata Tower at E&C, it's pointing the wrong way to be useful, has anyone seen it in full operation?
