AEG’s New Hotel

Cliff tells me this is going up on the Peninsula next year. I guess it’s been coming our way for sometime – AEG sulked for a while that they didn’t get the Super Casino, but they were always going to build a hotel here. It’s a monster though.

Blimey…

    I love how the 3-d software has options for pregnant blond women… but no Afro Caribbeans!

    I thought the AEG Hotel was by the O2? (Big white box in Vid)

    Isn’t this just the latest Meridian Delta Residential blocks? (Which, spookily, are listed in this weeks RGT with plans available in East Greenwich Library)

    They seem to have found a way to keep the traffic and the pollution down, while also ensuring all the residents enjoy milling about in the overshadowed streets…

    Yes James, I was thinking that.

    I also got a rather weird ’1984′ type feeling watching the clip. Hard to put into words.

    Hmm,
    Very Soviet Era design.
    Amazing how they got those nice uninspiring straight lines and rabbit hutch windows off to a tee.
    I am impressed by the GM Palm Trees on the roof gardens. Who would think they would survive the brisk winter winds up the Thames.

    Sorry your spectral majesty but Dazza is right – video is monster block of flats not hotel which is on the western side of the Dome video here http://greenwichrising.com/2443/aeg-hotel-to-be-built-next-to-the-o2/ They’ve already started building it.

  7. Yeah – sorry about that, guys – it was on one of those rolling video things and I managed to capture the wrong one. If you look at the link it will be there in all its glory.
