I'm trying to understand the location of this building. Is it next to the Station? and Ravensbourne by the dome?

So are the 2 lower white cranes in the center of the picture on the Ravensbourne site or are they another site?

TFL building is the shortest one... the tallest block is a spec build called mitre passage

There are parks, wide roads, segregated cycle paths and public transport routes. There is nowhere else in London where people can live in such a habitat. It will be very interesting to see if it works.
This is because a lot of Dutch architects are involved .

It'll look even better when it gets some neighbours and a bit more 'life' around it. I'm quite optimistic about Greenwich Peninsula, the renders i've seen so far for various proposals have looked quite interesting.

It looks like 1970's public toilet tiling.

A bridge to canary wharf would make sense here, but I fear any wiff of something useful and the word bridge will get Boris to cancel it! It would make so much sense even a habitable bridge might be a good way of linking the two districts.

Yes, a sleek pedestrian/cycle bridge would great, as long as it wasn't overbearing

Yes!! nice to see it being built!
I'm not convinced by the yellow/orange bits on the TfL building...a shame as it looks very good otherwise.

O2 to be office venue
Propertyweek
24.04.09

[IMG]http://i42.************/30ig67c.jpg[/IMG]
AEG Europe, the operator of south-east London music venue the O2, has submitted plans for an adjoining office building (pictured).

The 201,000 sq ft One Peninsula Square scheme would have a further 25,000 sq ft of retail, food and drink units on the ground floor of the site, which is between the North Greenwich transport interchange and the entrance to the O2.

Alistair Wood, executive director real estate for AEG Europe, said: ‘Progress has been made by Meridian Delta [the Lend Lease and Quintain joint venture] in securing Transport for London as a tenant for 190,000 sq ft on the adjoining plot last August and work on the neighbouring Ravensbourne College building is well advanced.

‘Our aim is to clear planning now with a view to securing a prelet.’

Last year the O2 was again the world’s most popular music venue, selling 2 million tickets.

It's going to be quiet a feast of architecture around the dome in the future if all the residential and commercial buildings get built.

I always thought it would be better to have this area as an open public square, you really cannot get a full impression of the O2 as you come out the entrance of North Greenwich Station with the hording there at the moment.
