Bloody hell.....the whole area is going to be almost completely unrecognisable from what it was only 10 years ago! First Westfield; then the redevelopment of Television Centre; and Westfield extension; and Imperial West. Finally this. Fantastic.

I know the feeling, I used to live in Stratford about 18 years ago, I went back for the first time last year and did not recognise anything (which was all good because it wasn't a nice place when I lived there). It is amazing how large chunks of London are changing for the better!!!

and on a side note that pedestrian tunnel for crossrail looks like a design striaght out of a sci-fi video game! Very awesome

The bridge and Crossrail Place in general is impressive, can't wait until all sections are opened/accessible.

English National Ballet set to move to new home in east London
The Guardian
May 2015


Quote:
The ENB and its ballet school will have a purpose-built home in Canning Town, joining many other artistic ventures heading east

For some of its more well-heeled audience members, the prospect of moving from Kensington or Fulham to Canning Town in East London would not be something to relish. But that is what the English National Ballet is about to do – and the company hopes it will provide a new lease of life.

Both the ENB and its associated training facility, the English National Ballet School, are to move to a joint home in the former dockland-dominated area of the capital, the company has announced.

They will move from their two current cramped bases into a purpose-built set of offices, studios and rehearsal spaces, being built within London City Island, a development under construction in Canning Town.

The aim is to “create a new space that allows us to produce and rehearse amazing work”, said the ENB’s artistic director, Tamara Rojo, adding that the facilities could also be used by other organisations. She said: “I want the space to echo to the sound of creative Britain.”

ENB’s move to the East End is a reflection of ENB’s wider ambitions under Rojo, who took over in 2012 after a glittering career at the Royal Ballet.
