Personally, I love its exterior. But I hate the view from above (the rectangle within a circle within an abstract form jars badly, IMO). And I'm a bit 'meh' about the interior bowl. So.......a foot in each camp!

But there's no doubt that it will be another outstanding stadium to add to the growing number of outstanding stadia in London. Come on, FIFA.....give London the first 48 nation World Cup. We can handle it!


I have never understood football , why anybody watch it is beyond me.

The scheme is a step change from the identikit glass concrete and steel concoctions that have come before. I could definitely justify extending my Earls Court update walk to take snaps.

Agreed. Like in E&C this development clearly draws inspiration from the Victorian apartment blocks of old.

Nightingale Estate = Parliament Hill Mansions

It seems as if brick has just been discovered. Its everywhere all of a sudden. It's marvellous.

And the Nightingale Estate looks just like Parliament Hill Mansions which is part of the Lissenden Gardens Estate (not to mention the other part, being Clevedon Mansions).

Love that vegetation. A nice complement to the industrial-style architecture.

Wates starts £40m Kilburn housing scheme

Developer Wates Residential has landed the job to build phase one of a £40m housing-led, mixed-use scheme in Kilburn, North London.

The design and build contract for the Abbey Area Redevelopment includes building 75 private homes, 66 homes for affordable rent, commercial spaces and a 52-space underground car park.

Wates recently completed £4m of enabling works on the Abbey Road and Belsize Road site and is now starting a 98-week main work programme.

The appointment comes just one month after Wates announced plans to expand its new-build housing activities and builds upon the developer’s project base in Greater London.

Hopefully the style is maintained on future phases. It would be nice if underdeveloped areas around Old Kent Road followed a similar route.

London Council unveils Wood Green regeneration plan

An ambitious plan to create a new town centre in North London’s Wood Green area has been unveiled by Haringey Council.

The council claims its plan could attract £3.5bn of investment if it gets off the ground, transforming the centre into a major shopping destination.

The plan relies on Wood Green getting a Crossrail 2 station, which is one of two route options being considered by Crossrail, with the alternative being a station at Turnpike Lane.

The council favour’s Wood Green as the best option for a Crossrail station as it underpins the redevelopment of the local area as shopping area with thousands of sq ft of retail, leisure and office space created and new workspace.

Plan for world-class concert hall in City of London back on track

Proposals for a new world-class concert hall in London appear to be back on track after the City of London Corporation agreed to replace money withdrawn by the government.

The scheme, costed at £278m, appeared derailed in November when the government unexpectedly announced it was withdrawing money it had pledged for a detailed business case to be made.

On Thursday the City said it would be provide the money, up to £2.5m, needed to complete it.

The new building would be erected on a site next to the Barbican currently occupied by the Museum of London, which is moving to Smithfield market. The hall would become the new home of the London Symphony Orchestra under the artistic leadership of Sir Simon Rattle.
