Very nice! (note this rare event I actually like one of these new developments)

This one is around here- I have an image of the actual site I will post later (it might be floating around on the official London thread)

Jef- Its no the Poplar tower but bizarrely this canary quarter hasn't started construction yet but has had the first phase released yet the Poplar tower is under construction & theres no mention of it anywhere on Galliards website.

Indescon Court is this scheme-



It has been somewhat blanded down from the funky red images on the first page. More of your usual blocks- Must be a remit for an architect that they are only allowed to use rulers if they are designing something for the docklands I think the tallest tower is 22-25 storeys

that is blandness in the extreme. but if it has as much green space as it shows along with the retail element (also shown) then i think it may well help the vibrancy of canary wharf and breathe some more human activity into the area (other than corporate)

I dont mind this from the render actually. Those full height windows are a dream...with balconies too! I could see myself there on summer nights. Plenty of greenery and facilities...who knows how it will turn out in reality

yes the glazing is very important, I feel that more 60s n 70s dense housing would have been still loved today if it had incorporated full height glazing and private balconies rather than having public walkways going past the flat entrance. I also feel that it is a disgrace that full height or large area glazing is not used in new build 'affordable' units

First phase of the development (JV Galliard-Oracle) will be undertaken over a period of 3 years (west of the site). The second phase (east of the site, mixed use, tallest) will follow. I am sure I have already seen this rendering on the forum but can't find it back. so here we go (link to the brochure)again:http://www.galliardhomes.com/UserFil...20Brochure.pdf

big green courtyard and public space. Thumbs up from me! Thanks to London Lad, I can now picture the site perfectly.

These make a nice change. From looking at that brochure over 70% of those flats are three or four bedroom.

Yes Potto - They remind me of some of the old social housing around Homerton I used to drive past (okay they're everywhere) - with the public walkways and such - often featured on 'The Bill'.

good stuff, luke/jef. nothing too tall but it'll add something a little bit different to the skyline, which looks set to expand north, east, south and west.

I like the look of this scheme! As usual it will be the build and cladding quality that will be the telling factor. If they look like the renders they will be a welcome addition to the area!

They look very interesting and massive too, I particually like the fact that there is some open space there something much needed in that area.

I don't like it. Too short and bulky, like the other buildings next to it. The height limits in this area are ridiculous.

Thought I'd bump this thread as it contains information on some of the earlier designs for this site.
