Great to see further investment in the Tottenham area. But, as much as I don't want to be that person, it does sadden me that the second render above shows an almost exclusively white population.

This is Tottenham - one of the most ethnically diverse areas in one of the most ethnically diverse cities on the planet, where the population is at least 50% non white. So if this render doesn't smack of offensive ignorance of the area then, even worse, it smacks of social cleansing.

Yes, please, because, I mean, it's just a render. There are no hidden messages, nor any other intention than showing a reference on how the building will look. That's what matters.

Not entirely sure what you're trying to say. Are you accusing me of racism?

I disagree.

If you knew anything about what is happening in London in the pursuit of gentrification, then you would know that the gross misrepresentation of the local population in this render is unlikely to have been an accident. Social cleansing is very much a live issue and we should neither accept nor ignore it.

It's just a render mate

Then it shouldn't be too hard to reflect the local population.

One would have to be more than a little naive not to understand why developers prefer to whitewash their renders. I just find it rather distasteful.

I echo JimB's sentiments.

Those that create renders of schemes in London typically have an awareness of an area and its demographics, in order to produce as accurate a depiction as possible. In some instances they fail to do so, and must do better. The Hale Works renders are an example.

It's a big problem.

A render depicts only white people under 30, all walking in couples towards their shiny sports cars, then the council puts a condition in the planning permission that the scheme reflects the images submitted. Before you know it, all old hairy people with a unsuitably dusky complexion are being moved aside.

The renders were probably done in Vietnam using their 'westerner' selection of Photoshop people.

I doubt they've studied census records prior to producing the renderings, surely their job is to assist the architect and developer on getting the scheme through planning rather than pleasing bleeding heart types. People have different skin colours and free to live where they want so get over it.

I for one am finding it deeply troubling in the decline level of discourse on this thread. Perhaps it just me but i don't think the probability of being stabbed in any world city is acceptable let alone trying to enforce some sense of racial divide and conquer.

Absurd comment. In a city in which gentrification and social cleansing is a pertinent issue, it's incumbent upon the client and collaborators to simply produce as accurate a depiction as possible of an area's composition in their visual material.

And believe me, demographic research is a significant part of the planning process. Understanding an area being important for creating good proposals, and community involvement being an important part of the planning process here.

In London, most do a good job of depicting an area in this respect. Some haven't in the past, and have been left with the embarrassment of having to rectify their oversight.
