The London River Park is dead.
OK, the London River Park has been dead for some considerable time, but over the weekend, the website joined its architectural vision and has finally given up trying to promote the project.
Announced in June 2011 as a new floating walkway along the north bank of the Thames, it was a fairly interesting idea, if more showcase for companies during the Olympics than a realistically long term addition to the London riverside.
Then in early 2012 they admitted it wouldn’t be ready in time for the Olympics, and that probably killed it dead in the water.
Since then silence — but some software I use to track changes in websites pinged up a change this morning at the London River Park’s website.
It’s also dead. Or accurately, all the light-weight fluff that hadn’t been updated since 2011 has now been replaced by a splash page from the website developers. All the other pages on the website have vanished as well.
The website domain name expires in 2015 if you want it.
Their YouTube promo video is still online if you want to see what we didn’t get.
