Nice Projects but they are fueled by a policy of cheap money.
The result is a housing bubble that will burst. London should return to Silver Sterling. But the best would be a free Money- and Banking System.
Inflation causes a redistribution from bottom to top. There will be no prosperity it created only problems. This is all a shame because I like London. But business leaders and university professors often do not understand much of the economy. They have the idea of free markets discarded and construct mixed systems with a bit of market and government intervention. And that does not work.

I think all great cities were built because of cheap money in some way or some sort of rush. Most of China was built because of cheap money. No where is different.

No offence but that is nonsense! A housing crash caused by a bubble would be good if it made housing more affordable..this current boom is determined by demand nothing else.

Agreed this is the level and scale of housing that we should be building across the East of the city. Let's hope Newham don't screw it up like TH.

Actually Berlin is very multipolar with more than one CBD too, while of course in a different scale and fashion yet. And then there is New York City, Tokyo, etc...

Seoul is also very multipolar

There are the main business districts Gangnam, Yeouido, Jongno-Gwanghwamun

There are the shopping districts where related businesses and others choose to have offices i.e. Myeongdong, Dongdaemun both are dense and built up.

There are the entertainment districts Itaewon, Sinchon (Hongdae), Kondae, Apgujeong which have lots of businesses and nice density as well.

And now Jamsil where lotte world tower is U/C.

Seoul feels like it has 20 cities within the city. They all feel different, they have their unique style and they have different stuff to do.

I never thought I'd see the day when Canning Town would get a development that massive (and great to boot). Exciting times.

Sydney is also like this and one of the few cities to rival London in terms of multi-nodal activity.

Primary:
  • Sydney CBD
  • Parramatta
  • North Sydney
  • St Leonards
  • Chatswood
  • Macquarie Park
Emerging:
  • Green Square/Mascot
  • Liverpool
  • Olympic Park/Wentworth Point/Rhodes
  • Epping
  • Hurstville
  • Bondi Junction
  • Hornsby
  • Strathfield/Burwood
  • Campbelltown
  • Penrith
  • Bella Vista/Norwest
  • Castle Hill

They seem intent on ruining a base design that is quite impressive. But with all that swirling adornment it looks rather too much like a 1970s Benidorm hotel. For many architects its about getting noticed at all cost over getting noticed for its actual quality. Design is more often successful in what it leaves out over what it piles in, Im sure there are enough kitchen sinks inside that building already.

It's not too bad in the flesh. It's neighbour is far more refined - confident and refined without trying too hard. Surprising for SOM as they often miss the mark these days.

I think the detailing is just to chunky for its scale. If it was half as tall again it might work. Equally if everything was just a little slimmer. Still, on balance its a good addition.
