It should be noted that there's quite a bit of discussion and skepticism around whether the Riverside South project is fully going ahead at the moment, beyond the foundational stages.

The Stratford East Village looks great - crisp modernism and gorgeous landscaping (I'm a sucker for water - the pond looks terrific).

Thanks. I remember there being a small scheme proposed for the site that I liked very much. It was just a small narrow (possibly hilly) street lined with small very southern European buildings. Can't seem to find it now though.

Are the developers of this site waiting for something because it has been very quiet for a long time?

Off topic but the deli on the bottom left hand side of this pic is a great little family owned place. I used to buy lots from there when I lived nearby.
