Very unfair to Plymouth, this is what post war Plymouth mostly looks like

P7095582 by Stephen Anstiss, on Flickr

Other than that it has a lot of beautiful preserved areas around the main shopping area.

I get the point that Nova Victoria is better than what was there, but it is a very fussy and complicated scheme for what is a complicated and fussy area. I think this image shows how poor it incorporates with the area

And this takes on the look of a rain-stained 60s throwback, especially on a gloomy day.

Yep. What with the river landscaping, the restored brewery with microbrewery/brewing museum, the restored stable block hosting 'boutique' retail/dining, creating pedestrian permeability across a town-centre site that has been impassable for decades, and paying to remodel the nasty one-way system, allowing part-pedestrianisation of Wandsworth High St etc - I think this scheme has some of the biggest potential for all-round urban improvement, beyond the mere boost to housing, of all the similar schemes floating around at the moment. All too many of which are basically blocks of flats with a Tesco Express and a Costa and a 'plaza' of public realm that's basically just a wide pavement for the Costa put tables on. Admittedly this scheme was 'lucky' to have the assets of river and listed buildings to work with, but still, I think the benefits to Wandsworth should be impressive.

I seldom visit Wandsworth, but I'll definitely visit when the Ram Quarter completes.

In terms of the public realm improvements, highway modifications and river through the site, the scheme is quite similar to Lewisham Gateway.

I'd argue that the photo of the Grosvenor Estate above isn't representative of the Victoria area.
