How exciting to think that E&C is going to be yet another cluster for London.

Shoes anyone know if there are any renders of all the buildings together?

I looked at Elephant & Castle on Google Street View and thought it looks a bit run down to be blunt. Nice to see it's getting some lovely new buildings.

Far from being blunt JamieUK, I think that's one of the nicest things anyone's ever had to say about Elephant and Castle on this forum.

Apparently, E&C used to be lovely.





Then the Blitz happened. 10 May 1941, in particular, caused a huge firestorm in E&C.



http://blackcablondon.net/2012/10/26...stle-part-two/

In hindsight the post-war rebuilding was unkind to the area in many ways, lots of huge blocks of concrete estates that went out of fashion, plus the poisoned chalice of hosting a key junction on the inner ring road, adding to the hostility of the street scene/architecture. So, yeah, "run down" alright, I remember getting lost in Elephant at 5am after a night out about 10-15 years ago, before I moved here and 'got my London feet', scary at the time for someone unused to an 'urban jungle' experience! The change since then has already been pretty big but will be even more, too bad it's probably already risen way out of my price range or I'd love to buy here.

Damn Nazis. I visited E&C a few months back. It still has some old gems but it's now mostly immigrants and fruit markets.
