Shame, that's a nice looking render of a stadium.

But I thought the supermarket had to be incorporated into the design.

The supermarket and technical college has already been built. Pretty ordinary it looks too!





P.S. The aerial, exterior render above is entirely out of date. None of MAKE's original master plan is still planned. As you can see, the supermarket is very different.

FANTASTIC news on The Pinnacle! I can't wait to see that core rise again.

I assume they will be using the same Concrete Core that is there now (aka: The Stump)?

Looks like a budget stadium job for the tots then. Still, any increase in capacity will be good for them.

Probably yes… considering the overall shape and height of the tower hasn't changed.

Very true... I guess thats why the completetion is set for 2017; because they have already finished the groundworks and started the core...

Quite the opposite, I expect.

Spurs have already stated that they intend to build the new stadium to the same high end spec and finish that they applied to the universally praised new training ground.

There are also big plans for the Tottenham area as a whole, with over £1 billion of funds already promised (and more to come) to various projects over the coming 15 years and transport improvements already being implemented, with more in the pipeline. The master plan is being overseen by Arup:

I guess until the work starts in the summer.. people will rightly remain sceptical

But, lets be honest… there's so much going up in London right now… 230 tall buildings this year apparently.. that we are very spoiled for choice.

A specialist demolition contractor has been hired to work on the core. It is unknown at the moment whether the core will be fully demolished (unlikely), or merely reconfigured to adapt to the redesign.

And no, there are not 230 projects over 20 stories going up in London this year. Some research was done and 230+ projects were found to be either under construction, on hold, approved or planned in London. Many of these will either be built in the next decade, or never see the light of day.

On the upside though, that 230+ figure is actually conservative. There are closer to 300 20 story projects either under construction, on hold, approved or planned in London.

I suggest, instead of many skyscrapers, to build at first more bridges.
London's North and South and not really well integrated. That's why there are not many bridges crossing the Thames.

I was born there. Except for the very central areas, London's halves operate pretty much as autonomous entities, as opposed to some cities which are well-rounded and to which their river is just a natural feature. More specifically, South London is much more suburban, cheaper, and less populated than North London. Just look at the Tube map to realize how skewed it is.

The lack of bridges outside the innermost areas is also dependent on the lack of demand to do so.

But, there are so few tunnels, and seriously ? (come on, a pedestrian tunnel, I find it a stupid idea, don't you ?)

A shame for the intersideral capital (Hello SO123) ...

There are loads of Bridges West of Tower Bridge in London as the river is shallower and narrower in that direction. East of Tower Bridge the river is wide enough and deep enough for large vessels to still travel up the Thames. Bridge building East of Tower Bridge has been discouraged because of the need to allow large ships to pass underneath them. This would either mean building large tall expensive bridges, or more bridges like Tower Bridge. Neither option has been particularly attractive, so tunnels have been dug instead. There are quite a lot of tunnels in the East, SE9 listed them not long ago. More road crossings are however very much needed.

A new road tunnel from Greenwich peninsular to Silvertown is in planning.



https://consultations.tfl.gov.uk/riv...sings/cc90b4dd

East London Councils either side of the river are pushing hard for a new bridge to be built further east between Woolwich and Gallions Reach. A previous proposal for a crossing here was approved by the previous mayor of London, but cancelled by the current mayor Boris.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-22437305

Currenly in addition to the tunnels there is the Woolwich Ferry, which would be replaced by the bridge if it were built.



The only current bridge East of Tower Bridge is the Dartford Crossing.

As stated by SE9, East of Tower Bridge there are two pedestrian tunnels, and three road tunnels currently. That's not including the Jubilee line tunnels, the London Overground tunnel, two DLR tunnels, the cable car, river ferry service, river car ferry service at Woolwich, the Dartford Bridge crossing and the Dartford tunnel crossing.

In planning there is a new road tunnel, and a crossrail tunnel is currently under construction.

The river ferry service at Woolwich desperately needs replacing with a new road bridge but that would be some way off yet.

'Autonomous' halves of London? Not many bridges?

Excluding the entirety of central London, there's 23 bridges spanning the Thames in London. For contextual purposes there's 23 bridges connecting Manhattan with the outer boroughs of New York City.

Of course we want more crossings as stated by Core Rising, however that doesn't negate the fact that overall the Thames in London is a well bridged and well tunnelled river.
