You mean the construction forum. A forum is composed of threads, which are so named because they allow threaded discussions.

Sorry to be so pedantic... I just hate when people call forums "threads". Reminds me of Bush, when he uses "the Google" and hears "rumours on the Internets".

Towards the "John Lewis" build & the undergrounding of the North London Line.

From the position I guess this is going to be the "Gold Blocks" of officies at the corner of the mall opposite M&S and the new northern ticket hall.

On the horizon to the right you can see cores being drilled for the Olympic Village.

The sheer scale of construction that Stratford is going through is unbelieveable. How many high rises and skyscrapers are going to be built in Stratford?

Fletcher Priest Stratford mall enters planning process
7 August, 2008
bdonline.co.uk
By Helen Pow

Designs for a 140,905sq m shopping centre to be sited between the international and regional train stations near the Olympic Village in Stratford, east London, have been submitted for planning approval.



The mall, designed by Fletcher Priest along with developer Westfield’s in-house architects, comprises of 77,434sq m of retail space, 20,668sq m of leisure amenities, and parking for about 3,200 cars.

The shopping area will occupy the three main floors, with pedestrian access provided at ground and lower ground levels. Leisure facilities will be located above the retail level.

The Olympic Delivery Authority planning team will decide the application as the site falls within zone one of the Stratford City development.

This is incredibly depressing. We've all known it was coming for a while, but that doesn't really dampen the disappointment. A giant wall of a building, mono-cultural, no street pattern, poor connection with neighbouring areas. It will be busy but lifeless, and with no prospect of adapting or changing to new ways of living we can expect it to be knocked down in thirty or forty years.
This is a product of uninspired planning and weak leadership.

It is sad but It's hardly surprising either. I do think this model for the " mall " is starting to change towards a more traditional approach. Unfortunately Westfeild hasnt really caught onto this and adds its typical indentikit approach to every mall they build. I think its a control thing.

But it has been known for decades about the long term dangers of this approach especially in planning and urban design circles. The sole blame should be laid at the feet of the planning authorities.

I mean for **** sake the thing is well and trule under construction, there are atlest 6 cores eithr complete or rising and several of the buildings are at steel work stage.
Unless in I am in some parrellel universe which is a year ahead in time

I wonder what all this will look like in a year with the Olympic Park well underway and buildings like the Spirit of Stratford rising. The scale of what Stratford is going through is very confusing IMO.
