What's with all new London renders being full of women in head-scarves?

It's Aldgate, mostly Asian people live there. The main east end mosque is a few metres away, as is Altab Ali park. I think this is part of the political ward of 'Spitalfields and Banglatown'

It's nice to see something other than cheap cladding - unlike the Barratt scheme in the background, which resembles a pvc sandwich box.

It is being built in Saudi Arabia?

In the last mock-up.....Not just women in headscarves, but a woman who looks like she is littering, a dog looks like it's about to take a dump and there is a 5 year old boy clad in burberry on the loose.......not somewhere I'd want to live.

A bit rich coming from an avowed rapist.

i'd rather live next to a serial killer that an obnoxious troll like you. You are one of these typical numptys that hang around forums for most your life trolling them. Saying things to people you would never say in real life. Hiding behind your computer screen. Idiot.

1 & 2 Aldgate Place does appear to be a decent quality, I'm rather warming to this round of solid brick with large windows, sort of industrial Georgian, look. Especially in these cheap areas (the vast majority of London) that cant seem to handle contemporary build very well.... see the dismal Altitude.

Whatever the quality of cladding or full height glazing you can never ever beat good brickwork.

Contemporary builings need materials that age well (like brick). Theres nothing more ironic then a modern building that looks grimy and dirty within a few years...

The townscape visual assessment on the planning application website gives more of an impression of how big these buildings are. Sort of New York style housing which is good I think for this part of London.

I'm a little confused by this thread. Having read right through it from beginning, am I right that Aldgate Tower and Aldgate Union are different plots? From what I gather, Aldgate Tower has started construction - at last - and Aldgate Union, on a different plot encircled by roads, is only proposed, as per the images above?
