    Looks like a Truman Brewery / spitalfields type operation that will make Pop Brixton seem tiny in comparison. Peckham will become fully fledged tourist destination.

    So do I, but how much of this proposal do you expect to survive through to the finished thing?

    I don't need to remind anyone of what happened at Pop Brixton where the final, Collective-partnered version was considerably different/slightly different/absolutely identical to the original proposals.

    Precisely my point, on paper whats not to like about this scheme, plenty of facilities for artists, musicians, photographers local entrepeneurs to have acess to studios, editing suites, recording facilities. So how's that all going to fund itself. It wont, and I suspect the finished result of this will be a long way from these proposals.

    They'll come up with something out of the blue like sticking a load of food and drink outlets on levels 5 and 6 to bring in the cash. And they'll not even use the same wallpaper as in that drawing. But local commentators will hold them to account.

    Still, as long as there's lots of trendy foodie places for grazing tourists with plenty of disposable income, what's not to like, eh?

    How very dare us, what a fucking liberty eh. You're right, I hang my head in shame, obviously they should be alowed to do what ever they like.

    And the comparisons made were laughably illogical / fairly sound / well considered

    I don't know what's the matter with us all. How dare we question what's going on in our area and try to hold people to account over self styled community projects!

    I'm screenshotting the image literally showing what they have promised the community.

    So they can be held to account.

    Alright so they've not promised a spade and fork - but if there's no vintage Rolls on level 3 when this thing is done, I'm going to kick off.

    I like the greenhouse rooftop, should be ideal for growing aubergines.

    Excellent, well done you, you've clearly grasped and embraced the causes for concern over Pop, I've no doubt any future contribution from you in regards to Levels will prove to be equaly incisive.

    I'm a 3rd year BA Geography student and I'm doing a project on gentrification in Peckham, with a particular focus on the contestation over the development of the car park. As residents and people with a strong interest in the area I was hoping to gauge what you would consider the main problems are going to be after the council chose the Peckham Levels proposal , and why the Bold Tendencies artists studios may have been a better choice.
    Or, alternatively, were neither of the options the right way forward? Is there any other uses for the car park that weren't considered that may have been more beneficial for the surrounding area

    ach. Whilst some people are waist deep in existing new food and drink experiences in an ironic iconic building, the foodbank up the road is having to process more and more punters every week.And every sunday morning, the residents still have to wade through vomit, smashed bottles, nitrous detritus and blowing piles of fast food wrapping shit left in the wake of the beared shit as they catch the first range train line home . Even McDonalds have applied for an all nighter licence IIRC to serve to pissed up arriviste vermin. I know Peckham has been poor for a long time now , but it was never as dirty or stinky as it is now. There isn't much trickle down of the £££ that is being spent on weekends that I can see.

    If property prices weren't ludicrous and generally people weren't getting screwed over, that place might have some interest to me. As it is, it's just depressing.

    I'm just completely bored with the same concept and formula being used again and again. Container Park/Car Park/Warehouse + expensive street food + expensive drink + clever marketing + art = new cool in-flight magazine-ready destination for narrow demographic.
