The tale of London’s Docklands from the 1970s to the property crash of the early 1990s has been told and retold many times. Yet, despite the surfeit of work tracking the period up to the early 1990s, surprisingly little has been written about the area since and, particularly, how it has fared in the UK’s post-1997 New Labour era. It seems that, after the crash, many simply lost interest in the area, writing it off alongside the liquidated remnants of Olympia and York (the developers of Canary Wharf) as another planning disaster and the inevitable end to an impossible dream.
