One Lime Street is one of my all time favourite designs. I love it. Cannot wait to see this develop.

Baltimore Wharf and One the Elephant are coming on much quicker than I thought.

Such good news all round.

I agree on 1 Lime St. If it's going to look really like that rendering it's surely going to be one of the best juxtapositions of modern and new in London (among a lot of failed tries).

2 more questions for you Londoners:

— will they demolish everything of the Aylesbury Estate? All of its ugliest blocks? The design of phase 1a seems very promising.

— is Barking still an overall dodgy area?

That's right, the whole Aylesbury Estate will be demolished. Every block.

Perhaps in a decade, by which time there will be many more projects to be added to the model. There's several large schemes in the very early stages of planning.
