Its amazing that such a high spec luxury development could be built in Elephant and Castle. In some cases I am wary of developer led regeneration and the following gentrification that can kill off an area's charms but with E&C well it couldn't really be much worse and this type of development could be a godsend for the locals as well as London as a whole.

Is this just me or I see some severe yet very welcome 'Lord of the Rings' influence here?
Can't remember the name of the big 'eye-tower'... You know!

This is the MOST exciting design I've seen in years.

It Will be an unreal sight to all the people coming out of the Ministry Of Sound!

the whole area is run down and a horrible example of failed planning from the 1960's - Strata is one of the first developments in a big plan to modernize and rejuvinate what is a poor and deprived area of London - if you can imagine the rejuvination of Chinese cities - this is pretty similar where a gleeming, futuristic tower rises and hopefully other improvements will follow.
