The renders of the new Battersea development are so Star Warsy that I remember people actually saying they were genuine concepts for Ep7.

It's like, I can't think of another city right now doing that kind of futuristic streetscape thing. Maybe because we don't have a lot of tall buildings, all that architectural talent has been put to use making everything from 1-20 storeys incredible.

CW station will look even better when the large project to its north gets underway. At the moment, it's sorta sticking out from the cluster, but when those other towers go up it will be nestled right in the middle.
