Battersea Plans Scaled Back

battersea tower plans revised A controversial development next to Battersea Power Station is in for a nip and tuck. After local opposition (some of it inept), 50 m will be lopped off the so-called 'Dyson' tower, with reductions in its waistline and capacity. At 250 m, the stunted highrise will still soar taller than 1 Canada Square if plans are approved next year. The £4 billion scheme from developers Treasury will also see the old power station restored as an entertainment complex, 1.25 million sq ft of office space and construction of a privately funded Tube station. If the huge project seems overly ambitious, remember that pigs have been known to fly over Battersea before.

Good to know it is going ahead and that the old power station is to be retained (being that there were plans to demolish it).

Remember the pigs - pink floyd et al...

Also remember that one of the pigs got lose and escaped to farnbrough before being captured.

So pigs do fly - even if they are filled with helium !!
