Bush Blog Editor Bart Govaert reports on the arrival of a Chinese University in the Bush ... now there's globalisation for you:
It is widely reported that Zhejiang University, one of China’s top schools, is planning a research centre in a deal with Imperial College.
The deal is non binding, so anything can still happen.
The Zhejiang London campus would be part of the Imperial West buildings that are planned.
Personally, I welcome the presence of a world class university in our area. (There was some talk of Chelsea FC moving to the site, just what we need - even more football traffic).
This being said, the overall plans for Imperial West are very ambitious indeed, with some very tall buildings, and if I would live “in the shadow” I’d be unhappy as well.
A Chinese University in White City?? It shows how the world goes nowadays.
