200ft 100m to 200ft 50m

same scale?

Wembley is the largest roof-covered football stadium in the world (every seat under cover)

Looks like your reading comprehension skills are exaggerated too! He said its the "physically largest" FOOTBALL stadium. Not largest stadium overall

Croydon, South London

This was posted by Shaun in the UK forum. Lots of new towers being planned for Croydon including the 160m building I mentioned earlier, plus another 155m tower and several midrises.

New renders (they're a bit small, mind)







It is also in London and Regionals last company synopsis dated feb 2007, so the project is still very much alive

erm 50 stories towers near Buckingham palace. Never!

I wouldn't mind them (depends on the quality of the design), but there will be plenty who won't

Despite the god awful Portland house already blighting some of the views of the palace.

Will you should use that pic as a model for the new scrapers that are due to go up. So we can see what London will look like in 2012.

The stadium shown in the original plans were little more than a rough sketch of what a possible main stadium could look like to show the IOC we had a decent vision. Similarly, the real design of the stadium is not the one in the above render although the building in the above image bears more on reality than the stadium in the first rendering.

If you ask me, London's Olympic Stadium Village will be the best looking ever. It reminds me of a World's Fair and/or the World of Tomorrow.

Yet another tower for London. First Base have updated their website and have confirmed they are working on a 43-storey tower for Southwark, designed by Richard Rogers -

No renderings yet though.
