The new development around Canada Water is really coming along now. There is lots of piling and excavation under way on sites A3 & A4, next to the station where the tower will be. Tower crane arrival apparently imminent.

Meanwhile, Site A1, at the eastern end of the Barratts development,  is occupied and looking very smart. Here it is from Swan Road to the north, showing how it blends in with the older council blocks on the left:

The new road between A1 (left) and A2 (right) is open, and now called Dominion Drive (planning docs called it the ‘Swan Road Extension’)

A2 (Vancouver House) is taking shape now, changing the whole feel of the area outside the station:

The library is also crawling along, with completion expected in the next few weeks and I’m liking the look now; I was disappointed with the facade previously, but I think it looks a lot better when you can see a whole frontage clad:

And here’s it reflecting in the tube station:
