I quite like these, the big one has a very detailed and interesting cladding and the small one has an interesting shape.
Agreed!I quite like these, the big one has a very detailed and interesting cladding and the small one has an interesting shape.
There will be masses of open space, greenery, squares, public areas, new cafes and retail, etc. The whole area will be transformed - from a decaying conrete hellhole into a vibrant new part of Central London. It will be unrecognizable in 10 years.Are there any plans for some new open space in Elephant & Castle?
In other words they`ll just ignore the masterplan! The great irony of British planning! no doubt we`ll end up without the park and a few high rise resi's dotted around the roundaboutThis regeneration area will indeed be unrecognisable in 10 years' time, and it's a great project.
Don't forget though that this masterplan is only a concept at this stage; the Council will appoint a development partner soon, who will have their own ideas about the actual form of the redevelopment.
Things like Oakmayne, Castle House (Multiplex) and the Rogers tower on the Park Hotel site are not dependent on the Council's masterplan, however; these will go ahead in the shorter term regardless while the Council regen scheme is being planned.
Built in the early 60's, rennovated in 1997.This is an old building, right?
You can't be serious - it's hideous! A major eyesore in the area.^^^ Please tell me this is not being demolished! It must be the best of all Coucil blocks ever built! Large windows, Lots of interesting shapes....
It is not being demolished....it is having an extention built next to it.It was originally an office block which stood empty for years,then converted into apartments.^^^ Please tell me this is not being demolished!
