The remaining building in the Southbank Place that is been kept. It's very clean and white looking in the render and matches better with the other buildings. Do they intend to clean it or something?

It's awesome to see Barking improving. I lived for a while there and now I won't recognise it.

i agree, the architecture reminds me of the futuristic spacey buildings commonly featured on 1970's sci-fi book front covers!

The upper level is a contained space, simply for the cinema, music venue and restaurant offerings. It is only accessible from the ground floor retail level.

They are not elevated walkways in the 60's context (elevated pedestrian thoroughfares across a site).
