One of London's more remarkable tower blocks has begun construction. Strata, also called the Electric razor for not unfathomable reasons, will soon begin to rise from a site just south of Elephant and Castle, reports skyscrapernews.
The 147 m structure is wholly residential, with 399 apartments, a quarter of which are earmarked for social housing.
This is no ordinary high-rise. At its summit, three huge wind turbines will set a green example visible for miles around. The 9m wide turbines will cut resident energy bills by around 40%, and neatly cube errant skydivers.
Boy, are we going to have some fun with Touch Up London here.
