The first picture is interesting, but somehow I dont think it will turn out like that. if its nice and green thats one thing, but other than that it fails to impress.

All Ability Place apartments are reserved or sold.

Simple model - building to the right.

Sugar! I was interested myself....I thought they might be a bit cheaper than others

This is from the sales website:

...being able to see the world's superstars at the London Arena just by taking a short stroll from your apartment to the other side of the water.

Talk about lying sales patter.

Last update of the day. It's easy to forget about these 'smaller' developments.

Thanks for these. I think that while this is less exciting than the likes of PP, which is something special due to its height, this looks to be a high-quality development, with a splash of colour and interesting shape. The northern part of Millwall Dock should look great when all these developments have finished.

one good thing about this development is that it will take some attention away from that butt ugly bland white building residential thing..next to it.
