The developers of the New Bondway buildings have submitted new proposals and invite interested parties to a public exhibition of what they say is their final proposal (aka take it or leave it) on Thursday 20th and Saturday 22nd February at Market Towers, 1 Nine Elms Lane (opposite the Tower). Personally I can’t see any difference from the previous submission – maybe they’ve changed the door handles. But it’s still fifty stories high. And it’s still hideous. Just what we want overlooking Lambeth Council’s Vauxhall High Street proposed to replace the Bus Station.

The architects have obviously never been to the site. Take a look at this last representation of the building from ground level currently on their web site. It’s missing the four lane race track currently in-situ. Although it does have a parked Jaguar and what looks like a Maserati, and shoppers (presumably having done their weekly shop at the Little Waitrose) strolling around calmly rather than waiting for the lights to change (they’re missing them as well) before doing their impression of Usain Bolt trying to cross the Gyratory.
