True. But it won't ever get such a focal point unless London City Airport ceases to operate.

Peninsula Place could work out really well if the cladding is done right. If not, it could become some sort of 80s all in resort from the Costa del Sol Im still confident it will be a high quality development tho. The O2 is the only iconic development in the area so far. This could have a huge impact.

Britain sets out plan for third runway at London's Heathrow



Britain laid out its proposals for a third runway at London's Heathrow airport on Thursday, launching a public consultation on a huge infrastructure project the government sees as key to its post-Brexit future.

The government backed a $22 billion expansion of Heathrow in October, ending 25 years of indecision with an ambitious plan to boost global trade links following the vote to leave the European Union.

While the government says the new runway is vital for the economy and businesses, critics are concerned over the impact on local residents and the environment.

A policy statement unveiled on Thursday sets out what planning regulations the proposed runway will need to meet to be approved and outline why Heathrow, on the western edge of London, is the preferred option.

"By backing the northwest runway at Heathrow airport and publishing our proposals today, we are sending a clear signal that when we leave the EU, Britain is open for business," Transport Secretary Chris Grayling told lawmakers.

Although much more simple, I'm sure that Garden Barge Square would beg to differ.

London Port Plans Billion Dollar Expansion

A US$1.25 Billion (£1 billion) expansion will transform Tilbury container terminal, the principal port for London, UK, by adding a deep-sea jetty for ships from Europe and increasing the size of its site from 850 to 1,100 acres — allowing it to accommodate larger ships from Africa, India and the Far East, reported the Financial Times.

The new berths will help meet rising demand for building materials as its the UK’s third-largest container terminal serving London and the south.

A total of 40 million bricks went through the terminal last year, as well as food, steel and consumer goods between Europe and the UK. Trade with Europe represents 60% of the terminal’s traffic.

Although Forth Ports will pay for the dock expansion, nearly half of the investment at Tilbury is being made by tenants stemming from the port’s privatisation in 1992.

The investment has been an important factor in for the construction of the biggest Amazon fulfilment centre in Britain on the site, which will triple employee numbers at Tilbury from 4,000 to 12,000 in the next decade.

Printworks opening: Welcome to London's industrial playground

As soon as you step out of Canada Water tube station it’s clear an event at London’s newest venue is no average night out. For one thing, it’s 3pm on a crisp Saturday afternoon. Another is the amount of ravers outside the Surrey Quays shopping centre.

This is the opening of Printworks, London’s new mega-venue. With a capacity of 2500 people it’s another step forward for a city that has felt a lot more open as of late. Located in the former Metro and Evening Standard printing facility, the surrounding area is populated by a Pizza Hut, an Odeon Theatre and endless carparks. Seemingly not the best place for a rave but once you catch a glimpse of the venue, all of that melts away.

It’s an impressive building from the outside, a relic of the past that towers over the strip mall below. Approaching the venue, the sense of something more than a regular club night is evident. We’re excited and it’s obvious the people around us want to get on it with Seth Troxler, The Martinez Brothers and Loco Dice b2b for a 10-hour tech-house marathon that will open the Printworks account.
