Do you like the shape and form of S1 & S11 residential buildings?
Tell us more...
The tower blocks appear mundane and to me are architecturally bland.
If other, please state...
How to minimise the volume of traffic passing through the road shown on video clip between the two towers, and minimise their speed.
Do you think S1 & S11 would be a positive addition to Stratford’s skyline?
No for reasons above - too high and lack any architectural merit.

It is disappointing that you have looked for inspiration for new builds from China rather than London. The video is depressing to say the least - compare and contrast with a walk through Convent Garden. What this site needs are well defined streets, a variety of land uses, residential buildings of say 4 or 5 storey max. - the Victorians called them mansion blocks and the same principals could still apply. Who really wants to live 20 storeys up in a small flat and the only thing on the ground floor is a supermarket + loud bar + a 15 minute walk to the train station.
What aspects are most important in S1 & S11’s ongoing development?
• Transport links
• Affordable housing
What is important to you in creating a community in S1 & S11 residences?
• Mix of tenures
No - it is monotonous.
I don’t think the shape really matters - what matters is having affordable homes that are actually affordable!!
• Day & Night activities
Supermarkets - or local markets! There is nowhere to buy food at the moment apart from Waitrose and m and s in Westfield
If other, please state....
Independent cafes are really important - not a Starbucks
