The first question has been answered twice already, but here I go again.

Shoreditch High Street is inside a concrete structure to protect it from further development works around the station, therefore the line won't have to shut.

No. The Bishopsgate Goodsyard development will be built on top of the station.

The entire brownfield site where the station is located will be developed into a mixed-use residential, retail, and office space comprising of several skyscrapers.

So is that the worlds only elevated underground station? Inside the station, you'd swear you were underground, only to find you're elevated.

Guess London likes the eccentric. Such as Whitechapel where the Underground Trains are upstairs, and the Overground trains are downstairs in a deep tunnel.

Elevated lines passing through buildings are quite common... There's examples in Tokyo for sure.

That's incredible. I wonder if anybody actually got on at one station and off at the other. Would've been quicker to walk surely...

I cant forget standing in front of the entrance to Canary Wharf underground station, with my camera towards the DLR, waiting for the train to pass right in between the two buildings so I could get the most symmetrical photo.

And then I had to wait for the newer stock trains so I could take the same photo again.

It was worth it!

Cheers, m

Toronto probably takes after London in some of those ways. We have two stations that are underground at one end and elevated at the other end.

We've got two like that in Paris: Radio France on line C and Passy on line 6.

I would've written that the erection of the office block occurred afterwards...

er... is that a pedestrian bridge? Or a roof segment for the station? How long do they intend to keep it on an angle like that. It's just a freaky sight.

Can't really say what it is. The roof will be curved so it could be a part of it. However, I can't see why they would put the roof in place before the construction of the station itself.
