A number of towers around Canary Wharf and the Isle of Dogs are bulking up the skyline for miles around.
One such location where the mass of blocks is most apparent is Greenwich, as shots from the peninsula show.
In these shots towers to the east of Marsh Wall can be seen completing including One Thames Quay.
As can towers reaching full height at the Canary Wharf Group’s Wood Wharf.
Quite the contrast from Greenwich peninsula where much of the area remains car park after car park a whole quarter of a century after the Millennium Done begun amid what was to be a major new London district.
Isle of Dogs and Canary Wharf’s future
As ever in the area more plans are coming in thick and fast. I’m working on a couple of posts looking at two such sites which will also change the views from Greenwich Park.
Some may lament the past when viewed from Greenwich but for me it’s what’s exciting about a major world city. Things never stay the same. Never have and never will.
When you can spot a thousand years of history and change in one view that’s an incredible thing.
I mean, who lives in a big city and doesn’t expect change? By all means fight for the right changes but as for those who seem to oppose any and all change?
Probably best not to live in a city.
