    The group wants to demolish the section running from Holloway Circus island to Hurst Street, including the bridge, and replace it with a tower of approximately 22 storeys containing around 280 flats.

It's a lovely old building, which will look better later this year. Plus the brutalist NatWest Tower to the left is being demolished at the moment, making way for an office tower fit for the 21st century.
