As said before, ken L is a man after our own hearts and buildings of 100 storeys plus are more or less guaranteed IF the airport is closed!

Great 3D Jef...I think Docklands looks like a city in its own right!

Well we already have two! City of Westminster and The City..lets have a third...City of Docklands The good, the Badand the Ugly...take your pick!

South Quay is the site to the west of Pan Peninsula. Capital and Provident owns this site and they submitted a planning application years ago for an uninspiring mixed used development with the largest element about 100m high. The application is still pending but C&P recently announced they now plan to submit a revised planning application with the largest element 16 storeys high instead of 23 (i think). They plan min 8 blocks on this parcel. Shame.

Hopefully it is for this side of the decade. C&P will first build another L-shaped building at Discovery Dock East, similar to the existing one. Just to the North of Pan Peninsula.

Reg. the site between Pan Peninsula and Ability Plc, no planning application has been submitted asaik.

I think we'll look back at the South Quay/Millennium Quarter as being a bit of an architectural urban disaster to be frank. Too many plots, too many crammed in buildings, lack of open space and too much height for buildings so close together.

Revisions to the scheme have been submitted to TH:

Main changes:

- Increase in number of storeys within Block 1, from 27 to 30, within the existing consented enveloppe (reduction in floor to floor height from 3.2m to 2.9m)

- Increase in number of storeys within Block 2, from 40 to 44 (also within consented enveloppe, 139.4m AOD)

- Increase of family units and affordable apartments from 125 to 158.

- Additional children's play area

As a result, the total number of apartments within the scheme will increase from 691 to 802. Energy Report, etc. has been provided.

This is the site (found on TH website)


http://194.201.98.213/WAM/showCaseFi...mber=PA/06/889

And this is/was the original application

http://www.epr.co.uk/architect_offic...uay_6,7,8.html

http://www.epr.co.uk/architect_maste...southquay.html

And compare it to the new proposals

http://194.201.98.213/WAM/doc/Curren...df&pageCount=1

It looks like they are decreasing the site of the Office & old residential elements from the first scheme (you can see the old scheme outlined )

If my maths is correct (with a calculator that does not work indoors!), then there is a 1.7% increase in affordable housing provision and a wapping 8.8% increase in flats for sale at regular price?

What do you mean the first pic is blurry?..it looks perfectly clear to me! (after a heavy night of excess)

Thanks for the update

There was a depo which was used to distribute newspapers from the Westferry printers, and a row of old warehouses (which I quite liked actually - shame they couldn't incorporate them into the scheme!)

The site was totally built over, with no empty space - and they've demolished half of the depo so far - I expect it all to be gone by the time I get home!
