Marvelous! The photos look as beautiful as renders. Also I love the tiny streets of London, they looks so private and authentic, unlike any other city in the world.

And that is how London knocks it out of the park blending old and new. Simply stunning.

HB Reavis deal to kick-start 600m Waterloo scheme

http://www.constructionenquirer.com/...terloo-scheme/



Quote:
Developer HB Reavis is planning to deliver a near 1m sq ft office-led scheme close to Waterloo Station in London.

The firm has just secured the 1960s office block known as Elizabeth House, which has planning for two buildings, one soaring to 29 storeys.

Former owner London & Regional and Chelsfield sold the scheme after scaling down initial proposals from around 1.3m sq ft for a price believed to be 250m.

HB Reavis said it was now assessing the complex site before announcing plans which will include a mixture of offices, retail and residential.

Capacity increased

Improved seating layout design has meant that we have been able to increase seating in several areas of the stadium. This will now see our official capacity rise to a total of 61,559 (from 61,461).
The biggest gain will be in the single-tier South stand, which will now be able to accommodate 17,500 spectators, an increase of 500.
The new stadium will be the largest capacity football club stadium in London.

This could potentially be 7 if QPR get their way and build an larger stadium on the Linford Christie grounds, but i doubt it will be 60k.

Think I'm right in stating that London could actually meet the stadia criteria to hold the FIFA World Cup, don't think any city in the world could boast that...

I honestly thought they were renders... if you didn't tell me I'd keep scrolling thinking "cool, wondering when they're going to build this".

I just hope that this development will be succesful, most importantly the residential part as it is the first residential development in the history of company. HB Reavis is a major developer in Central Europe and the lack of residential projects is problematic when they redevelop whole city quarters as it is sometimes a case.

I am also curious about the architects they will choose for Waterloo. My guess would be Gensler.

The architect for the Waterloo scheme is David Chipperfield Architects, it already has planning consent.

I was about to do a comprehensive post on this scheme because of the HB Reavis news, but was too slow and got beaten to it.

Posting at SSC is not a competition. If you have something to post, then post it.

It's nothing to do with competition, there's simply no point posting news that's already been posted.

The only difference would have been the format.

But seriously posting 10 pictures again on the same page, is wasteful.
