I've learned that the Olympic Park Legacy Company is looking at a figure of around 8,000 homes as it works up its masterplan for the Olympic Park - a substantial reduction from the 10,000 to 12,000 proposed in the London Development Agency's original legacy master-plan framework - drawn up by architects EDAW, KCAP and Allies & Morrison in early 2009.
That is no great surprise given the OPLC's stated focus on revising the original masterplan to focus much more on family housing.
The original LDA plans envisaged between 10,000 and 12,000 homes in six village developments with just one providing low-rise family homes.
The OPLC has publicly talked of around 10,000 homes so far.
But sources close to the legacy body tell me: "There will be some high-rise housing but only around transport nodes. These are exciting plans with a focus on quality family housing and significantly reducing the number of units originally proposed."
It all makes a lot of a sense when you consider how ghostly the nearby Royal Docks is in the daytime after the area's commuters leave their high-rise blocks for work in central London or Canary Wharf.
Making less sense is the continued lack of clarity on the new government's attitude towards a deal transferring the Olympic Park from the LDA to the OPLC without the associated debt.
Let's hope something can be tied up in time for the upcoming "two years to go celebrations" at the end of this month.
