Looks great, and clearly it's a smart strategy to redevelop this corner of London. However being sceptical I wonder how much of this housing will be genuinely 'affordable'?

Also makes me wonder why there is so much money for such huge developments in London....yet elsewhere in the UK we see smaller but vital projects (Nottingham's Eastside) scrapped on financial basis? Yep, jealous of London, unashamedly so.

Investors are much more likely to see a return on their investment?
It does peeve me somewhat that London is so ridiculously far ahead.

Its New Covent Garden Market. Just Slightly south east of the complex - but still apart of the new neighborhood. There is a map showing its geographical position on here!

Something interesting abou the "One Nine Elms" Twin Tower skyscraper complex:

Quote:
The Development is programmed to be one of the first residential schemes to be completed at Vauxhall, after One St George Wharf.
(from the official website: http://www.nineelmslondon.com/map )

Interesting to read that statement - especially considering that St.Georges Wharf is seriously nearing completion.

Certainly a vibrant one. And it deserves it after so much neglect.
