Funny how the view-count of the London thread has suddenly surged ahead of the Paris one when it was trailing behind by about 3000 views 2 days ago....


Who's cheating now ?


SO143, London Fox, Porto nutjob or one of the numerous other London no-life propagandists have been hard at work this evening, it seems.

Although for them, I suppose clicking like madmen for 2hours is a nice change of pace from flooding every section of SSC with thousands of London pictures all the live long day.

And now that you've had the thread "cleaned" I guess the next logical step for you is to once again portray yourselves as the victims and denounce the jealous French in the Paris thread, which strangely enough has not been "cleaned". Oh wait. You've been doing it already.

What's the point of you posting here?

From what I can see the pictures and news items being posted here are of active and real projects that will have significant impact on the future of the city.

No one forces you to click on this thread so if you don't like it then just stay away.

Sorry to even feel the need to post this, but can people just stop blathering on about the London - Paris issue? It's pathetic. Why do users who have 'issues' with their 'rival' city even venture on to the their threads?!

I come on here daily to see news about the exciting transformational boom going on in London, but have to trawl through the pettyness, which I'm sure puts alot of people off bothering to get involved.

To all the regular contributors, thank you so much for keeping us updated!

Here's an interesting story...

Architect blasts plans to turn disused Dalston garages into 'bijou' homes



A row has broken out over “morally bankrupt” plans to turn disused garages on an East London estate into tiny flatpack homes.

The designers behind the scheme say that empty lock-ups are exactly the sort of space that should be used to help solve London’s housing crisis.

They have created computer generated images to show how their design could work if applied to garages on an estate in Dalston

It would involve each tiny garage being turned into a “bijou” bedsit with a tiny living space with a kitchen and room for a small table and two chairs, a shower and toilet room and a bed.

Each fifth garage would contain a communal laundry, further kitchen equipment and dining area. Tenants will be charged just £11 a week rent.

But critics says the temporary homes on the Loockner Estate are little more than “caravans” that pack people into cramped spaces.

One architect, David Roberts said: “Personally I think ‘pop up’ housing is morally bankrupt. Any architect who is serious about homelessness should be addressing the causes of the problem, rather than using developer-speak consistent with the commercial forces making housing unaffordable for so many.

“There is political capital in presenting this as temporary solution to underused land, as much as to homelessness but the houses are pretty much caravans.”

But if successful the scheme will be rolled out across London and then the rest of the UK where there are housing shortages for young people who cannot get on the property ladder and the homeless.

The project, known as Pop-up HAWSE (Homes through Apprenticeships With Skills for Employment), has been designed be Levitt Bernstein Architects as part of the Building Trust’s Home competition.

The architects are already in talks with a number of local authorities in London to work on similar schemes. The homes will be built off site and then assembled by future tenants through an apprenticeship scheme.

Jo McCafferty from Levitt Bernstein said: “The proposals not only offer a home but education opportunities in construction techniques.

“It is a way of regenerating street frontage and a practical interim solution between other development possibilities.

“We see it as part of the wider regeneration of existing estates.. It could provide temporary housing, workshops, and training opportunities for maybe one to two years, before moving to another estate after demolition begins.”

Architect Georgie Revell said: “The proposal targets under-used spaces in high density areas where land value is high and rising. We believe it offers a creative and practical interim solution between other development opportunities and we’re really excited about the potential to develop the scheme with Building Trust and our partners.”

This Paris-London feud is really starting to get on my nerves.

On behalf of all the people that don't give a flying **** of the number of posts each thread has, who has copied who and simply want to get informed on the projects going on in these two great cities. Please stop!

Vauxhall Sky limit for Caddick.(UK)

Yorkshire-based Caddick Development is in talks with Frasers Property to buy a prirr development site in Vauxhall for around [pounds sterling] 20m, in what would be the developer's first foray into central London.

Caddick Development plans to purchase Vauxhall Sky Gardens, near Battersea, in a joint venture with C Group the new business venture set up by City Lofts Group founder Ross Mansoori-Dara.

The site already has planning permission for Vauxhall Sky Gardens, a 34-storey, mixed-use tower that will comprise 200 flats, 82,000 sq ft of offices and just more than 2,200 sq ft of retail.

The joint venture partners want to retain the planning approval …
