Pan peninsula has a restaurant/bar open in its base, which enlivens the dockside. once all these buildings are occupied then the surrounding streets will come alive.

That is the sexiest deck access yet seen.

It looks more like a beach resort than something in London

More classic work from Docklands resident master photographer Chest. Really top class stuff there.

Wish all of these new flats were open when I lived there in 2006...no where near as much choice back then!! Things still sure move fast in London - even during a slow down.

I'm loath to put any of my own lame photos on after (another) amazing update from Chest, but I was in the area today and here goes.

I really hope the second phase of the Indescon court scheme (the high-rise bit) goes up eventually; as you can see the Lantern's Court scheme seems monolithic and blocky from the North.





So a 90-100m tower (whether the one planned, or not) would add some much-needed variety!

As yet there is no sign of progress; the site is the marketing suite for the completed low-rise part of the Indescon Court scheme.

I hadn't been to the South Quay for a year - having worked in the area for the previous two - and was actually pretty heartened to see that the previously dismally empty streets south of Marsh Wall now have a bit of life to them. People have moved into some of the new blocks and it was nice to see a mix of families with kids and banker types wandering in and out.

Little things like posters for upcoming events at the community centre adjoining the Mastmaker Road development stuck in people's windows seem... encouraging.



It's not great architecture. But at least there's a bit of density here.



I wonder what's going to happen to the (very large) London Millharbour site - deserted for years now.

Let's hope that, when something does go up, that it's good - if only to offset the effect of two of the area's worst new buildings, the Hilton and Discovery Dock East.



And I wonder when, if ever, they're going to do something about the office scheme adjoining the Hilton.



That scaffolding's been there unchanged since 2007 at least.

Sudden activity in South Quay!

A huge amount if activity has started in South Quay!

Enormous holes being dug and trucks galore visiting the indescon court site - does anyone know whether they are now going ahead with phase 2?

Also the Audi garage has suddenly emptied out - again, imminent signs of work starting?!
