Following consultation, the preferred framework will be assessed to see how it meets the expectations of the legacy partners and wider London community. The process will culminate with the final LMF, which sets out the long-term aspiration for the site. This will be supported by a series of delivery strategies outlining the broad approach to the implementation and delivery of the framework. Following the publication of the LMF, planning applications will be submitted setting out the development proposals for the period up to 2025. The planning application will also include the legacy commitments previously stated and outline the broad phasing of development and the approach to the longer term evolution of the site.

Six key concepts shape the masterplan framework. They support the overriding ambitions of the vision and its drivers by establishing a set of principles that respond to the complexities and requirements of the site and its context.

1. 2013 Olympic Inheritance
*
Olympic legacy regeneration of this area will build upon all of the assets delivered as part of the Olympic Games. Sporting venues, infrastructure and utilities, areas of landscape and public realm will all be captured as a fundamental starting point for the LMF project.
2. Neighbourhoods & Centres
*
New London neighbourhoods are emerging as part of the LMF, with existing centres in the adjacent fringe areas developing and expanding. The location of new centres will start to define the character and amenity of different places.
*
3. Connections
*
New and improved connections within the Olympic Legacy Masterplan Framework will stitch the site into the surrounding context and give new possibilities for existing residents to access new and improved amenities.

4. Open Space & Parklands
*
The legacy parklands will provide a significant open-space network for existing local residents and visiting communities. The parklands will be capable of hosting a range of outdoor activities in various landscaped park and waterway settings.

5. Water City
*
River corridors form one of the key structuring elements of the framework plan and increasing community accessibility to the abundant ecological habitats and rich biodiversity in the waterways system is fundamental.
*
6. Field Evolution
*
Field evolution refers to a phased development of the Legacy Masterplan, which will evolve over time and be integrated with the wider area. Based on a field system where different fields over time change their meaning, use and relationships with other fields, it is of great importance that this process is managed, steered and controlled efficiently to be delivered successfully.

Vue to run new cinemas biggest in the UK

At Westfield London a cinema complex to seat 3,000 will be built. The wall-to-wall screens will be fully digital and be able to show movies in 3D format. The largest auditorium will seat nearly 500 people.

THE shopping-centre owner Westfield has signed up Vue to operate multiplex cinemas at it newest site in Shepherds Bush, west London, and at the under-construction mall in Stratford, east London.

The Shepherds Bush cinema will be the largest, purpose-built, all-digital cinema in the UK, with 14 screens, all able to handle 3-D technology.

The two multiplexes will cost several million pounds to build. It is hoped that the west London site will open by Christmas, with the Stratford venue ready by 2011.

Westfield told to ramp up Olympic security at Stratford

Stratford City developer is urged to install blast-proof glass on shop windows at massive cost

Westfield may have to rework parts of its £1.5bn Stratford City development to include security features such as blast-proof glass in the facades.

The shopping centre developer is understood to be in negotiations with Olympic bosses over security recommendations made by a specialist consultant brought in to assess the project.

The consultant’s report, carried out as a compulsory part of the project’s compliance, is understood to urge Westfield to strengthen security features by installing stronger glass and making minor structural changes. Work on the scheme is under way, but the glass has not yet been installed.

Sources close to the scheme say the developer is trying to minimise the changes to keep cost down. One said: “Bomb-blast glass looks less good for retail purposes and is more expensive. Westfield’s point is this has to happen just for the short period of the Games, but it will be stuck with it afterwards.”

A QS familiar with the material said the cost of changing to blast-proof glass could be “massive” and the building’s structural framework would need to be altered.

Westfield is responsible for ensuring the development is secure during the Games, but the Olympic Delivery Authority and the Home Office have an interest because of an access route to the Olympic park that runs through the site.

A source told Building that Westfield was in discussions with the ODA; the ODA denied this, but declined to comment further.

Westfield said: “We’ve carried out our own risk assessment; however we’re not able to discuss the details of this.

“Westfield [is] in liaison with all relevant parties to ensure Westfield Stratford City is a safe and secure environment.”

best to be safe...

The Town Centre Link Bridge, which has been successfully pushed over 11 live railway lines at Stratford Station, touched down on the other side of the tracks this week and reached one step closer to serving millions of spectators during the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Both before the Games and in legacy it will provide a vital link from the existing town centre to Westfield’s £1.45bn Stratford City Project.

In an unprecedented feat of engineering, the 1,600 tonne, 128m long and 14m wide bridge touched down in Stratford.

John Armitt, Chairman for the ODA said: 'The town centre link bridge is crucial to getting millions of spectators from Stratford Town Centre to the other side, into the Olympic Park. It will play a key role during the Games and will play a key role in legacy, allowing residents and commuters to walk freely from one side to the other.'

Keith Whitmore, Director of Design and Construction for Westfield, said: 'This is a hugely complex and groundbreaking feat of engineering which took a large amount of co-ordination and expertise to deliver on time and on budget whilst maintaining a fully operational station.

'Opening in 2011, this vital piece of infrastructure will transform Stratford’s connectivity and unlock access to the powerful new retail and leisure offer at Westfield Stratford City for commuters, residents and all existing and future users of the town centre.'

Patrick Hallgate, Network Rail Anglia route director, said: 'This project took a great deal of planning and collaboration with our partners to ensure all the necessary measures were in place. Learning lessons from the installation of the first two bridge sections, we’re pleased and proud that we’ve been able to deliver this final piece of key infrastructure without any disruption to train services through Stratford station.'

Richard Parry, Interim Managing Director, London Underground said: 'This new footbridge is a huge step towards improving access to the Olympic Park and will help to severely reduce congestion around the Stratford Regional station entrances when it opens in 2011.

'A lot of work and planning has gone into making sure that this new footbridge was installed without affecting London Underground and Overground services and we are delighted to see that this has paid off and that this important milestone has been reached without a hitch.'

The bridge was constructed on site in three sections which were then progressively pushed out on three separate occasions.
Great!

what a load of old tosh. "Legacy" is being used as morally authorative stick here. I'll believe it when I see it.

^ How do you mean? Now it's certainly true that the Olympic legacy serves commercial interests (ie Westfield's massive new shopping mall) but I think we need to work with the commercial sector if the legacy is to be successful - and it can't afford not to be successful! If Stratford is going to recoup the vast sums of money invested into it, and if we're serious about creating a new hub of activity in London, then the commercial sector has to be involved. What we want are people and businesses locating there to regenerate this run down area. The Westfield mall will be a big draw for them, and also a major local employer.
