3D Buildings for a Part of London in Google Earth

For some time now the guys at DigitalUrban - a blog by the folks at the Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis (CASA) of the University College London - have been talking about a large collection of 3D buildings they have ready for Google Earth. However, they are trying to arrange a licensing arrangement with Google before they release it. I hope they work out the licensing soon, because I've been impressed by DigitalUrban's teasers.

Eastern London 3D buildings in Google Earth

In the meantime, I noticed someone at the Google Earth Community has been posting some basic 3D buildings for east London . Posted by 'barnabu' (who also did Google Saturn, and Kings College Chapel), he says he purposely kept the building models low in complexity. This simplicity makes for a fast download and good performance once the 3D buildings are loaded. I'm really looking forward to seeing what the CASA folks have done though.
