I wouldn't be surprised to see major development in and around Park Royal eventually too.
No doubt. The difference is that before, most things of note in London were concentrated to the centre and west. There was seldom reason for people to travel east of Tower Bridge.

The east's change of fortunes in the recent past is what I refer to with respect to the 'shifting centre of gravity'. From nothing, it now hosts a major financial district (Canary Wharf), London's premier concert/entertainment complex (the O2), London's premier exhibition/conference arena (the ExCeL), London's largest/most visited shopping centre (Stratford), the Olympic Park, the rising East End and so on, with more to come.

Almost a third of all new homes planned in London are in the boroughs of Tower Hamlets, Greenwich, Newham and Barking & Dagenham.

Isn't the main reason that so much development is going on in the east end is that for so many years vast areas of the East where left derelict or undeveloped,
and because of this it is now much cheaper to build in the east end because you don't have to demolish anything to build on a site (and the fact there's tax breaks I think for brown field sites) therefore making it a lot more economically viable to build these vast developments.

im not sure what's more amazing. The massive scale of that or (looking at the first photo) that there is so much empty land in London that hasn't been built on.

Anyway looks like a very interesting project, thanks for the update!

No problem. The peninsula was full of gasworks, but was left derelict after their closure.

Sad, but fortunately the new building will "provide London with a modern destination hotel, fulfilling the demands of the future visitor to the capital, as well as those living in the city" and "will be a superb addition to the spiritual home of British entertainment and cinema"
