Let's recap some of the major ongoing developments, which constitute a major share of newbuild residential units in London. Identical architecture or not?

Extremely poor road design: the driver of the car in the background feels the need to drive over the public footway - that is illegal. Also the silver car in the foreground is overhanging the public footway - that is also illegal.

Not sure if serious but I'll play it with a straight bat anyway....

Extremely poor road design?

Or just extremely poor driving and parking?

My money's on the latter.

The car in the background is not on the pavement. The road meanders to the right at that point.

Further down the same road:

There's someone who fiddles the figures to keep Paris's total ahead of London's. It's been going on for years. Pretty sad when you think about it!

New York Times Opening London Digital Hub
The Wrap
December 2014


Quote:
“We are relocating the existing bureau and the other existing Times employees in London into the same space,” a Times spokesperson tells TheWrap

The New York Times is opening up what some insiders describe as a digital hub in London, a spokesperson for the paper told TheWrap.

In the middle of 2015, the paper will move its current employees in London along with staffers from Paris—and some from the U.S.— to a new office in Bloomsbury, London that will house 100 employees. The new office will reportedly become the paper’s main digital outlet along with being home base for its international issues.
