Have you all noticed that in the few short years it's been there, the Wheel is SUCH a trendy landmark that every new development tries to get it into the background of their pics if at all possible - just noticed that now the new building at Coin St. is trying to climb on the bandwagon.(Horrid thing).
I agree with James. It will be interesting to see how any oppostion to the 'three sisters' application is articulated. I would have thought the owners would (unlike local residents and many pressure groups) have access to enough funds to mount a sustained challenge to the proposals if they choose to.
Although a relatively recent additon to London's skyline the wheel is undoubtedly already one of the 'icons' of London. I wonder whether its lack of history and historical significance and (perceived) temporary nature will count against it when the application is considered.
