I've just been over at Pudding Mill Lane's the View Tube to see the Olympic Park Legacy Company sign a memorandum of understanding with the Field Studies Council to create an urban residential field studies centre on the Olympic Park site after the 2012 Games.
Baroness Ford was on amusing and interesting form unveiling what is a good first win for the Park.
The agreement will see a centre where national charity FSC told me it would expect to bring in up to 20,000 students a year studying urban design and environmental management as the OPLC oversees the development of the Olympic Park over 25 years.
Looking across the hive of activity at the park today you would have to think there would be enough for students to get stuck into.
The FSC will now develop plans including funding options for a centre on the Olympic Park which could accommodate up to 150 beds.
Baroness Ford said that the announcement was not being made on perhaps the best day, as the first Prime Minister's Question Time was looming and Locog will today unveil the Olympic mascot.
"I am in the strange position of being sandwiched between David Cameron and Seb Coe," she said.
With regards to the OPLC, Ford said that Tory plans to create a Development Corporation out of the vehicle were pretty clear but it remained to be seen how imminently this would happen, at which point the organisation would digest the implications.
She was also upbeat about the interest in the Stadium.
"A year ago people were saying football for instance could never be done with an athletics track and now people have accepted this can happen."
Ford said a "multi-sports vision" would be clearly be a successful outcome.
