    Ontario Point, Canada Water. Nearing Completion.

    A few years ago Westfield opened a massive urban Mall in Shepherds Bush, it's kicked off a big regeneration scheme that converts all the old warehouse space here into mid and high rise homes.


    The first app in was from Westfield to add another 650,000 sq ft of space plus 1500 residential units. Which I think I've covered before.


    To the North of the Motorway Imperial college has started on there Imperial West scheme. 600 post grad study rooms are due to open and phase 2 with new labs and academic buildings are about to start along with a 30 odd storey tower to help fund it.

You can see these as you head into town on the Westway, The most exciting will be the 32 storey sloping tower to help fund the scheme. Imperial is supposed to be also trying to by the 10 acre Marks & Spencer warehouse just north of the westfield expansion scheme.


    So potential a real high rise campus here.
































    Further South Aviva have applied to convert the Dairy Crest site.

    Once crossrail is finished this rise on one part of the construction site above Tottenham court road.

    The most exciting part is that these all sit above a 800 person venue in the basement. Unfortunately it sounds a bit posh for GAY to move back, as it's described as suitable for award ceremonies, fashion show and live music events. As it's new it won't be the old skanky Astoria and the acts it used to attract. But still it brings back a major entertain space.


    Also to whet the appetites of those here there is something described as an "Urban Gallery" consisting of 20,000 sq ft of LED light displays. Though it looks like it is to be contained in a semi open space with one of the buildings that can be screened off for events. From the sounds of it they might have to give warnings to epiletics.




    Though there are mountains of planning documents already, it's mostly reams of structural reports about building above tunnels and a million soil samples. For example all the elevation drawings just consist steel sections. Nothing as of yet to show you what it looks like.


    I do have a couple of floor plans.











    Reading more, it seems this Urban Gallery will be a big space with all the walls and ceilings covered in LED screens which can be hired by brands looking to market something. It is designed to be digitively interactive so consumers can point there smart phones at products on screens and purchase.

    Found some pictures.


    Subtle it is not, very bling. It will all depend on the materials and detailing whether this is successful or not.

    Plans have been filed with Hackney Council for a 150,000 sq ft development in Shoreditch. The project, dubbed Shoreditch Village, would be built on the old car-park opposite the Tea Building, currently beloved of street artists and fashion shoots.


    The redevelopment, designed by architects Ellis Miller, would be mixed-use, with offices, a hotel, and a handful of new homes, propped up by ‘edgy, aspirational stores that typify the streets and culture of Shoreditch’. With construction unlikely to start until the end of next year, the nearby retail rival of Boxpark should be coming to the end of its enduring ‘pop-up’ tenure by the time the development is open for business.

    This sort of thing will consolidate the area as a new retail and leisure area of London and within 10 years will be a mix of Covent Garden and Camden.

    - The scheme will comprise a single storey public amenity pavilion with retail uses at ground floor levels.
    - There are three amenity levels, one including lounge areas and play space on the 27th floor and another which will provide gym facilities, a library and a cinema on the 56th floor and a roof top garden on the 75th floor.

    The reason for the sky gardens or roof gardens in some of these scheme, is that large schemes need to provide leisure and play space. If there is no space for a courtyard or lower level roof garden, that means this!

    New Brent Civic centre. I also like this. Good materials nicely detailed. Has genuine civic presence. Good counterpart to the arena.














    Hilton looks good as well and now has a TGI Friday's, which for Wembley is good.








    Excuse the finger but it was pissing down by this point.


    You can just see the outlet centre under construction.





    Waterside Park is coming along next to the Barrier Park. Barratts have just put in permission for phase 6 next to the river and then the last phase will be the block where the marketing suite sits. I can see that starting this year as well.


    I like the brickwork and the plan works well. But until everything else gets built you are marooned miles from nowhere, so those little shop units will never let, from the population base it's got now. Also they will get no passing trade as there is nowhere to park.


    Thats another complaint, there are wide empty side roads everwhere but they are nearly all double yellow lined. I tried to drive around and get pictures of other developments or the University but there was nowhere for visitors to park. I don't know how people get people to visit them in some of these new estates as there is nowhere for anyone to park. Not even single yellow lines or pay and displays. It is easier to park in the West End.

    for London's Albert Embankment
    15 March 2013


    News: three residential towers designed by Foster + Partners for a riverside development in central London have been given the go-ahead by Lambeth Council.


    Foster + Partners' towers are part of mixed-use scheme led by St James Group on Albert Embankment, a stretch of land on the south side of the river Thames near Lambeth Bridge.





    Ranging from 15 to 27 storeys in height, the towers will contain 253 apartments and a bar, gym and pool for residents, as well as restaurants and offices. The smallest tower will be positioned behind the tallest one and can just be seen on the left of the development in the top image.


    The scheme is part of the £15 billion Nine Elms regeneration project, which includes plans for 16,000 new homes on a 195-hectare site between Lambeth Bridge and Chelsea Bridge.





    Grant Brooker, senior partner at Foster + Partners, commented: "We hope to transform this important and highly visible site into a vibrant riverside community that sets a benchmark for the regeneration of this part of the river."





    In 2010, Philadelphia architect Kieran Timberlake won a competiton to design the new US embassy in the UK, also located in the Nine Elms area – see all architecture in London.


    Foster + Partners recently unveiled a polished steel canopy in the harbour of Marseille and announced plans to research 3D printing on the moon using lunar soil – see all architecture by Foster + Partners.


    Images are by Foster + Partners.


    Here's the press release from Foster + Partners:


    Planning granted for landmark mixed-use scheme on London's Albert Embankment


    Lambeth Council has approved plans for St James Group’s new mixed-use scheme at 20-21 Albert Embankment in London. Consent was granted for three landmark buildings designed by Foster + Partners, ranging from 15 to 27 storeys in height and providing 253 apartments, including affordable homes for senior living, along with offices, restaurants and a residents’ bar, gym, pool and spa.


    The scheme is the latest development to achieve planning in Nine Elms – a 195-hectare site between Lambeth Bridge and Chelsea Bridge on the South Bank, which represents the largest regeneration initiative in Europe. The £15 billion Nine Elms project will include 16,000 new homes and 6.4million sq ft commercial space with planning consent.


    Cllr Lib Peck, Leader of Lambeth Council: "This new development on Albert Embankment is another important stage of the transformation of Vauxhall. Developments like 20-21 Albert Embankment are essential to bringing new jobs, new affordable homes and inward investment into Lambeth which will secure our long-term economic growth."


    Sean Ellis, Chairman of St James: "St James is in the fortunate position of owning a number of developments that will have a lasting impact on London and in this case its riverscape. This is a responsibility we take very seriously and are therefore committed to working with the world’s best architects and designers to produce developments which help enhance our world class city. Over 90% of the homes will have their own balcony, many with stunning views of the river and the Houses of Parliament. In addition, St James has carefully considered the landscape architecture as part of the wider strategy, delivering public realm spaces on all three sites that will be of exceptional quality."


    Grant Brooker, Senior Partner at Foster + Partners: "We are absolutely delighted that 20-21 Albert Embankment has received planning permission – working alongside our clients at St James and with great support from Lambeth and the GLA, we hope to transform this important and highly visible site into a vibrant riverside community that sets a benchmark for the regeneration of this part of the river."

    From these pictures it appears you just don't see wavy glass in London. The glass is always such good quality.

    Bloomberg Place
    Bloomberg is consolidating his presence in London (the NYT had an article earlier in the year: http://www.nytimes.com/2013/02/08/ny...anted=all&_r=0) with a vast new groundscraper built atop a site in the Square Mile which was once the Roman Temple of Mithras. The previous 60’s office development relocated the remains of the temple to the south, but the new project will relocate the temple to its original position and be built around it.

    It was envisioned that the previous 60’s construction work eradicated what little artefacts may remain, however it has just been announced that 10,000 historical Roman treasures have been unearthed; the largest such find in London. Relics include perfectly preserved straw baskets, leather shoes, written logs, tin plaques, amulets, brooches, beakers, tiled floors, and even upright Roman oak fencing. 50 archaeologists are on site, and the project even has its own blog (http://walbrookdiscovery.wordpress.com), some have nicknamed it the Pompeii of the north!
