Regarding the view from Greenwich Park , SE9 could always add in a rendered view of the IOD in 2025 for instance when all the towers are due for completion. There's always a render lying around somewhere.

EDIT: Just saw some more renders and its very chunky from other views so slightly disappointed now. Still looks decent though

Shame, i quite like the building thats there, though the internal layout is probably not that great. The corner elevation is not great as all other intersecting buildings have rounded corners.

Fantastic updates all over again.

It's just that I can't get rid of the feeling SE9 is paid by the City of London or some developer/promoter to supply SSC and other social places with all this stuff, all day every day... Anyway, great job there.

SE9 I'm sure is just an enthusiast of regeneration like most of us here. Some like plane spotting, some like comics, some like buildings. Being able to balance his life with entertaining us all (because for us it is entertainment) with these updates is a credit to him. I know how difficult it is trying to update the birmingham threads and we have 1/50th of the amount of regeneration as London. It's amazing how much time and effort he puts in. I know I really appreciate it as I'm one of those whose hobby is development and construction. That or his rich enough and retired to not find the need to balance work and keeping us informed I won't begrudge that. Cheers SE9 as always.

Cheers, it honestly takes no time at all. The longest process is standardising the image sizes (all 1024px width), which improves the aesthetic & flow of a thread.
