Plans to regenerate an East End housing estate are going before Tower Hamlets council again next Tuesday despite residents saying they have "hardly changed".
Under the plans for the Eric and Treby Estates in Mile End existing buildings would be refurbished while 14 bed-site unites would be demolished.
Blocks up to seven stories high would be built to provide 179 flats.
Two community buildings and a management office are also part of the plans.
