Three big projects at / near the planning stage in Whitechapel.

1. Whitechapel Square: Sainsbury's development with something like 608 residential units.

http://planreg.towerhamlets.gov.uk/W...&action=Search

As its being built over the Crossrail station I believe it's unlikely to start until Crossrails complete.

2. Whitechapel Central: Mainly residential development (609 units up to 25 stories), with some office and retail.

http://planreg.towerhamlets.gov.uk/W...er=PA/15/01789

3. Whitechapel Estate

Is Riverlight, in Nine Elms by the same architect as NEO Bankside? They look fairly similar, in style anyway.

London already did that during its boom time from the 1800s up until the post war decentralisation attempts but yes there is potential to repeat that but on the scale as seen in Tokyo in modern times for a more city urban feel. Lots of politics to overcome though as each centre seeks to retain its perceived identity.

Coming at the same time of Tokyos building boom Canary Wharf was like a brand new clean slate and is slowly expanding, but still lacks the cultural element for a true city centre, potential here is to merge with Greenwich peninsular and the docks further East.

Of the older generation of centres I would say Croydon in the South and Stratford in the East (Olympics) are the most open to dramatic change at the moment. Unlike Croydon, Stratford has already partly been branded Stratford City and has the potential to really form a truely destination urban mix of culture and business, its probably the big one to keep an eye on at the moment.

The Westfield expansion in the West with the new Imperial University campus and White City regeneration could form a new city area. So keep your eyes out on those three! Longer term you have Old Oak Common plans slowly forming, already dubbed Canary Wharf of the West, but could just turn out to be another Croydon. We will see.

It's certainly a crucial time for London. Let's just hope that the architects and developers of these major projects forging the new London have as much affection and respect for the city as they do for money!

North Greenwich is a high capacity station. The opening of Crossrail will release capacity there at rush hour, and planners are exploring other options including a water link to the Isle of Dogs.

Wow! I didn't realise the project was starting so quickly!! I know this is probably the 100th time I've said it, but I can't believe how quick the Docklands is changing.

The cable car has plenty of spare capacity which should be better utilised in future. Bare in mind the new business district planned for the Royal Albert Dock, the expanded City Airport, redevelopment of Albert Island, and Silvertown Quays; there are some very large employment drivers in the works which should be within easy reach of residents via the cable car.

On top of that, you have the large employment growth planned for Stratford with the Olympic cultural quarter, as well as some large new office developments in that area. These will be easily reachable for Peninsula residents via the Jubilee line in the Eastbound direction. Commuter flows should be better spread between the Eastbound and Westbound flows than they currently are. (virtually all Westbound). That should help to alleviate the capacity on the Jubilee.

There's also the new Silvertown tunnel which will improve vehicle traffic flows through the peninsula, alleviating the seriously congested A102/ Blackwall tunnel. I don't imagine there will be a huge amount of vehicle traffic from Peninsula residents, (public transport should be king here), so Silvertown tunnel should help alleviate the traffic flows without Peninsula residents eating up the extra capacity. This means that TFL will be able to run extra bus services from the Peninsula to destinations north of the river (Silvertown, City Airport, Excel, Albert Dock, Canning Town, Stratford, ect.).

So there is currently spare public transport capacity on the Peninsula, and Eastbound an awful lot of it. The two major choke points are the Blackwall tunnel and the Jubilee line Westbound. The Blackwall tunnel will have its capacity alleviated via the Silvertown tunnel, and this will have additional knock on benefits of extra bus routes off the Peninsula northbound. The Westbound Jubilee should see some capacity alleviation once Crossrail opens, but hopefully new employment opportunities in the Eastbound direction will help to better distribute commuter flows off the Peninsula.

There is of course scope for more public transport capacity, and I'm sure there will be growing demand as the population of the Peninsula grows. I think a proper pedestrian link from North Greenwich to Canary Wharf would be welcomed, however it will be very difficult to build in bridge with the plans for a cruise liner terminal at Enderby's Wharf.

Another option would be to extend the DLR to the peninsula. -Edit- I googled this and came up with a feasibility study conducted by Greenwich Council in 2012 into extending the DLR from Canning Town to Eltham, via North Greenwich. See pages 44 and 83 for the route, and page 93 onward for some photo-montages: https://853blog.files.wordpress.com/...ham_dlr002.pdf

The most realistic improvement that hasn't yet been tabled is to bring Southeastern Trains within the TFL as part of the London Overground. This would mean improvements to signalling, rolling stock and overall capacity on the London Bridge > Dartford via Greenwich line. Charlton, Westcombe Park, and Maze Hill stations could be better utilised to serve the south of the Peninsula. They is within walking distance of the southern residential developments such as the Telegraph Works, Enderby Wharf and Millennium Village phase 4. Indeed, they may even be closer to those developments than North Greenwich station. Better pedestrian and cycle paths would be needed, and the A102 presents a formidable physical barrier, but it certainly isn't an impossible obstacle to overcome.
