All planning application renders have to be proportionally accurate. Detailed surveying is undertaken to make them precise. From Rotherhithe, Alpha Square is two-thirds the distance of the Canada Square towers.

I mean, it's obviously accurate. But they have chosen the angle/fov that makes their building look the biggest. It's an advertisement.

No they're trying to get the project approved, not advertise it.

There's renders of it from multiple directions in the planning application. It's not in their interest to make the tower look bigger than it would be.

So why did they produce images that make it look bigger than it actually is? If their goal was to minimize its impact, they shouldn't have produced those exact renders you cherry-picked. Because that's literally what they do.

Once again, they didn't produce renders that make it look bigger than it actually is.

As I stated just a few posts up, detailed surveying is undertaken to produce each rendered image from each viewpoint. Surveying is a discipline that involves the measurement and determination of distances, angles and points.

The 'goal' isn't to minimise the impact, it's to provide an accurate representation of the proposed project.

Clearly a downgrade from what was there before.

A very nice job they've done with it. Building Design have recently published their architectural review of the project: Dorsett Hotel, west London by Flanagan Lawrence

Can't access the article, but the building looks good, drawing on its Deco roots.

Ah, I get it now. I'm being dumb.

Are there standards and practices for these renders (ie, a minimum amount, a set number of viewpoints, etc). Or is it just 'enough to make the case'?

Countryside wins 400-home London estate rebuild

House builder Countryside has been named the development partner to redevelop an east London estate in Walthamstow.

Countryside beat rival developers Lovell, Bellway, Family Mosaic and Regenter to land the job for Waltham Forest council.

The regeneration of the 1960s Marlow Road Estate will see existing properties replaced with over 400 new homes.

Detailed design proposals will be submitted for approval in Spring 2015 with building works starting later in the year.

The scheme, designed by Stitch Architects, includes 150 affordable homes and flexible retail space around a new Plaza and public square.

Richard Cherry, Chief Executive of Countryside’s Partnerships division, said: “Our focus will be on bringing back traditional tree-lined streets that link well with the surrounding area, with active frontages providing well defined spaces for the neighbourhood to enjoy.”

Chobham Manor is okay... could be worse I guess.

I just wish there was more character.

It can be summarised as enough to make a case.
