News Update – Apr 2009

20 Blackfriars Road

Westminster City Council High Court bid to stop Doon Street tower development – set for Jun 2009 with WCC apparently confident of a victory. The Doon Street tower has been referenced as precedent in approval for One Blackfriars (Ian Simpson Architects) and 20 Blackfriars (Wilkinson Eyre), skyscrapers proposed for Southwark. Westminster City Council are apparently concerned to protect key views for example from St James Park out to the east over the River Thames.
