Amidst the current controversy surrounding the construction of the Waterfront Museum of Liverpool between it’s ingenious Danish Designers, Studio 3XN and Manchester-based architects, AEW we can’t help but step back and appreciate it’s original design in awe. This is because according to the Studio 3XN, several aspects of its original design, like it’s signature X-wing design have been “meddled” with by AEW.
Finally….yes finally the Shard London Bridge is slowly but surely becoming a reality. For those of you that have been living in the ice ages, the Shard London Bridge is set to become the UK’s & Western Europe’s tallest building standing at an intimidating 310 metres (1,016 feet) and spanning over 72 floors. It is to replace the 28 year old Southwark Tower, a 24 storey office building located on 32 London Bridge Street.
The Shard according to the developers, Sellar Property Group is a mixed use ‘vertical city’ that would include a public piazza, Europe’s first Shangri-La Hotel, 5-star restaurants, a public viewing gallery, offices, shops & the highest residential apartments in the UK.
Whilst the newspapers are predicting doom, gloom and a continued downturn for U.K. property, plans for several up-market high rise condominium buildings in major British cities seem to be progressing nicely.
