    The regeneration of the Kidbrooke housing estate in South East London continues to good effect.


    About 50% of the new estate is affordable housing, some part buy and rent other purely social housing.

    The momentum of the Olympics continues and potentially the most interesting regeneration will be Hackney Wick, which is a current jumble of old factories and warehouses on little Islands just to the west of the Olympic park. It also has it's own station at Hackney Wick which is part of the much upgraded Overground.

    This application for 500 units in a dozen or so buildings shows much promise.

    More details of the Fish Island scheme.








































    Plus more detail on the Southern half of the Olympic park once it reopens.

    1st here is the area the Southern part of the park will cover once all the building plots are used up.








    The avenue of trees acts as the main pedestrian route with each 'room' of the park opening off it. So one will have open air theatre space another flowers and quiet seating, while the ones nearest the main east west route will have the kid playpark and the water maze.

    Here are two maps that show the Olympic park, just after it reopens fully in 18 months time, and after all the development sites have been built on.

    First how the total park will look open before any site is built up.













    Then the full build out.










    Until the all the sites are developed they plan to grass over the unused sites but they plan to take 20 years to develop all of them! While that might be great in prevent a flood of properties devaluing your investment, it could store up it's own problems. People could become very attached to all that open space.

    Only the Central tower with small office building behind are the proposed buildings in the render. The others are already under constructionor have planning consent.

    Some beautiful architecture there - the Shard is magnificent. I saw it on the train a few weeks ago coming into Waterloo and it takes your breath away, especially at night.

    Crossrail

    TfL has released an image gallery showing how the £15 billion project is transforming London. As mentioned previously in this thread, the Crossrail route will pass through 37 stations and run 118 km (73 miles) from Maidenhead and Heathrow in the west, through new twin-bore 21 km (13 miles) tunnels below central London to Shenfield and Abbey Wood in the east.
    When Crossrail opens it will increase London's rail-based transport network capacity by 10%. Services are due to commence through central London in 2018.

    Here's a link to a BBC gallery of all of the images released.

    It looks fantastic Nick - great shots, you found more than I did!

    Default some updates

    Lots of planning apps and consultations not being appearing.

    1st up redevelopment of Sampson and Ludgate House, two lumpen office blocks either side of the Blackfriars railway viaduct.

    Mostly residential towers with some offices and much nicer retail and restaurants.

    full story on skyscrapernews here with a summary of each building.

    Arrowhead quay, Isle of Dogs

    Ballymore have been trying to flog an office tower here for over a decade. They've given up and switched to residential, which most landowners are doing outside the Wharf.

    Included amongst all the other documents, there's a Townscape and Visual Impact Assessment, which has a bunch of renderings of the new design, a couple of which I've included below. I think the whole assessment document is worth looking at though. It's amazing (at least to me) how far away these buildings will be seen. Also, they show outlines of all the other developments that are planned for the area, which I found quite interesting.
