This rendering shows what that looks like, and we can tell you that at night the blue halo makes it stand out along the river, even with the multi-hued light show across the concrete of the National Theatre nearby.
This is a better view of the new wing that’s being added, taken from behind the OXO Tower, with in the far right corner the Southbank Tower development.
The size of the building continues to impress us, which in some ways it needs if it will comfortably house 316 rooms & suites and office & retail space. We’re not sure whether the hotel entrance will be the glassy addition you see on the right, but we’re inclined to think you’ll be passing underneath the south wing first and then pull up to it on your right. It feels like a lot of major construction work still needs to be done though, so summer or fall is the earliest we’d guess Mondrian to start welcoming guests.
