Article in today's Standard mentions that tower plans are being fought in E&C. Wonder which towers?

Who knows. The Standard may not even (gasp!) be entirely correct.

The Oakmayne 'philishave' tower development on New Kent Road seems to be be going ahead, they made a revised planning application which was approved, in order to change the hotel element to a halls of residence. They sold most of the apartments already (off-plan) so are about as committed to it as they can be.

Actually the philishave tower is Strata not the Oakmayne Plaza tower...

ah yes. Oakmayne have sold theirs off-plan; and the Strata development has full consent and they've cleared the site. So I'm hopeful for both.

Not that I do anything other than fence-sit over the merits of skyscrapers...
