It's incredible how that land remained untouched for so long but now it's worth to see this project turning into reality.

I have to say I personally think the Battersea Power Station project looks pretty awful. I am no Chelsea fan but it would have looked marvelous as a stadium and probably would have been a tourist attraction in its own right. As it is, this magnificent building is being swallowed up by all of the other new buildings and you can't really get a sense of its majesty. I think it's a shame.

London's Historic German Gymnasium to Open as a Restaurant Complex
bloomberg.com
3 August 2015

Quote:
An historic building erected by the German community in London 150 years ago will be transformed into a restaurant complex with a grand café and bars next to the Eurostar terminal at St. Pancras International.

The German Gymnasium was constructed in 1865 for the German Gymnastics Society, a sporting association established by Georg Ravenstein, a Frankfurt-born cartographer and fitness fanatic. It hosted the first indoor events of the 1866 Olympic Games.

The site now belongs to D&D London, whose restaurants include Coq d'Argent and Le Pont de la Tour. D&D will create a European brasserie in the high-ceilinged main hall and a restaurant overlooking the brasserie. There will be an outdoor terrace, bars, and private dining. It is scheduled to open in November.
