Stratford must be a very exciting place to live right now. Eck, It's changing so much it looks massively out of date on google's sat maps.

There are seven highrises for Stratford. Although many of them are IMO are poorly designed.

The "world’s first underground urban farm" is set to start selling herbs and salads grown 33 m (108 ft) below the streets of London. Growing Underground is based in disused World War II tunnels. At less than two miles from the city-center, it promises farm-to-fork produce in less than four hours.

I've lived in south west london all my life. If you've lived or even grown up near heathrow airport as i have it has quite an influance on you. The continuing expansion is not what i want however... Just for a balanced arguement.
Environmental politics aside, im addicted to this constant stream of amazing updates on london projects.. Thanks
