Tower looks good. Very unconventional for a British effort. More American in the massing, elevations and the fact that the tower is split into ground, middle and top. Acceptable in my book.

An ugly place, but nothing like as notorious and dangerous as it was.

I would still prefer it to look more like this:

Blaxland House 1941

Before I forget, the main reason I posted this thread now is because it's been reported within the past few weeks that the developer (Helical Bar/Aviva) will sell the project to Imperial College London.

Haha agreed mate. The new development looks very nice but it doesn't help if you're constantly accosted by stabby locals walking from White City Station to it.

My neighbours mother remembers waking up the next morning after an air raid to see this at White City Estate ^

LOL I am there twice a week now and its not like that anymore. The die hard Chavs are all gone it seems. Prison or dead I guess. The majority of the new residents are from very 'family friendly' ethnic backgrounds. You can walk through the state even without fear. Its an amazing change.
