Thanks, as ever, for all your updates, SE9. Always good to see my favourite project featured in this thread!

I have to point out, though, that these pics of the new WHL are not the latest on offer from Spurs. They're actually from a month or more ago.

The number of architects working on the Battersea Power Station is impressive.

You're right, I inadvertently clicked on the wrong gallery!

Will do better on the next page

To be honest, even the latest gallery is 2-3 weeks out of date. If you want the very latest pics, your best bet is to go onto the stadium microsite, click on Interactive and then click on the various time lapse images. They're good quality, high resolution pics. You can right click on each and open in another tab which gives you an individual url.

I would do it myself but I know that you you like to stick to a post format and image size on this thread and I fear that I would get it horribly wrong!

Even though the scale is impressive, I'm not too fond of the Battersea slowly disappearing among the new apartments. It should be towering above all nearby developments.

It will be largely obscured when viewed from the railway (which isn't a loss), but remain prominent when viewed from the river.

The site of Battersea Power Station is almost too big to grasp. I remember seeing this project for the first time and thinking it would take ages to go ahead. Hopefully it turned out differently.

Phase 1: Nearing completion - is Simpson and DRMM
Phase 2: The Powerstation itself - is WilkinsonEyre
Phase 3: On site - is Gehry and Foster
Phase 4: Is the Northern Line station site - not sure what 's going on top yet. I suspect they have enough going on across the site for a while now before they need to get any more phases away!!!

BIG are doing one of the public spaces next to the powerstation

Vinoly did the original masterplan and hasn't been near the project for years. So it's nice to see the list of credits get expanded.

Eden Walk looks fantastic for Outer London. Also, love the fake brands (Wahaco and Pizza Eass).

SE9, I wanted you to know that in a parallel universe where SSC still has the likes system/function, I was the first to put likes on all of your posts.
PS: The scalpel looks splendid.

What height does a building need to have to be considered tall in the map above?

According to this study, a tall building is 20 storeys or greater.
