I think I'm excited about this. Computer images look quite good on the architects site, but can't really see the detail:

Has anyone heard more about the arts cinema and various restaurants/retail outlets that were the market still safe?

Really hope this prooves to be an interesting addition to the area- we have waited long enough!

I agree it does look exciting. Does anyone know when it is due for completion?

As I understand it, the market is safe. See:

Am hoping they'll add a Spitalfields style market in time too, but that's obviously a way off....

The only retail outlet to be confirmed is Sainsbury's.

Completion is meant to be late 2008 although my guess is that it will probably run over a bit as these things always tend to.

Haven't heard anything about restaurants/other retail stores or who the hotel operator is.

Can't wait until it opens!
