OOoops – Cancel That!

London's Walkie-Talkie Skyscraper May Be Delayed

The London office building dubbed the Walkie-Talkie, one of six towers over 500 feet (150 meters) planned for the city's main financial district, may be delayed by the commercial property market's slump, the developer said. Land Securities Group Plc plans to construct the tower at 20 Fenchurch Street in the city's main financial district. Demolition of an existing building on the site is due to be completed in early 2009 and construction work will start once a tenant has been found, said the company.

    Political will as much as economic circumstance shapes the look of our capital cities, especially the skylines. For ambitious politicians, high-rise buildings spell success and a will to triumph. Yet skyscrapers are essentially old-fashioned, reminiscent of 1890s Chicago and 1920s Manhattan.
