While Liverpool and Newcastle will likely be getting new high-rise towers, it’s London that’s getting high-rise towers and skyscrapers a-plenty. A skyscraper being defined as being 30 or more storeys.
Adjacent to Waterloo Station is the redevelopment of the Shell Centre. I’ve watched the site develop over the last year or so. Visiting the area at the beginning of the month, it was the number of building cranes that impressed. The site titled, unadventurously, as Southbank Place will provide much needed public space near the London Eye, which being a tourist hotspot has become unattractive with the sheer mass of visitors to the Eye, London Dungeon, Sea Life Aquarium, and other attractions.
You can see changes to the area in the developers website. Their vision is shown below, and my photos below that.
