High-Razor Tower Begins Construction
Spot the fake

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.
