Here is a nice project just starting construction in Staines Upon Thames. London Square. Will transform the High Street.
I know exactly what you mean...there are similar vibes in Spain, but the Japanese suburbs (pretty much linked to the cities seamlessly) get me going.I've got a bit of a thing for Japanese suburbs lately, can't really put my finger on why.
I'd love for a neighbourhood on the outskirts of town to develop with this kind of eclectic
density, with different styles of architecture and little bars and shops peppered throughout.
I wish this kind of thing were done more often. Creates a greater sense of cohesion. Can somebody please do this on Princes Street Edinburgh. Some of Britains finest buildings and then squished between in regular intervals there are some legitmate turds which ruin the feeling.Piece of crap built in post war era London by mindless architect:
Its replacement, which fits in perfectly with its surroundings and is a rare example of good modern architecture
Oddly enough I don't like it, I don't know why, I just don'tNew York with another cracker.
It must be wonderful for Architects over there, as the don't seem to have a developer budget limit. Th returns for a property developer must be astronomical. Or it comes across like that. They probably do.

plans have been unveiled for david adjaye’s first condominium tower in new york city. titled ‘130 william’, the project will be built in downtown manhattan’s financial district in close proximity to the world trade center site. the nearly 800 foot-tall building (240 meters) will contain 66-stories and a total of 244 luxury residences. ‘the design for 130 william acknowledges the tower’s location on one of the city’s earliest streets,’ explains adjaye. ‘understanding that rich history, I was inspired to craft a building that turns away from the commercial feel of glass and that instead celebrates new york’s heritage of masonry architecture with a distinctive presence in manhattan’s skyline.’
the tower will be clad with hand-cast concrete, complemented with smooth bronze detailing
