Its worth pointing out BPS isn't just apartments, it will also contain a large amount of office space ( aimed at the creative sector with itv rumoured as looking at it for a proposed HQ move amongst others), retail and restaurants etc, theartre and probably a cinema I would guess (forget what the Wilkinson Eyre redevelopment of the actual power station entails) as well as opening up the site to the river.

Excellent illustration. Also, I'd like to just add that there are fantastic apartment/office buildings surrounding the Tate - not forgetting the new extension too.

Alongside the Millennium Bridge, the area has become iconic! It's so.. London!

That tunnel is great. The wooden handrails add a classy touch to an ultra-modern design.

Always slightly irritated at that TV Centre graphic, with the old font up front and the newer font on the wall. Better one or the other.

It's so cool to see City Pride on the up! I know I've said this nearly a 1000 times but the Docklands skyline is going to be insane.

As always, thank you SE9 for the updates.
