Thanks for this. Probably should put up some information board.

Do you know about this place: https://maps.google.co.uk/maps?q=Lon...,,0,-5.44&z=14

It's been like this for few years, pity to watch as this is in nice part of the City.

And another house, I've passed on A406, thinking "what the hell", nice spot and derelict: https://maps.google.co.uk/maps?q=Lon...,,0,-8.25&z=15

That boarded up house is 85 Madeley Road, Ealing. It's Grade II listed, but it and some of its neighbours are in a state of disrepair. The latest application to renovate them was rejected in 2011.

Those boarded up houses in the Finchley area are due to be demolished as part of the King's College - Hampstead residence redevelopment:

Oh, that's unexpected, I hope that doesn't mean they wont proceed with above ground construction until they find a buyer.

There's still time of course, groundwork has only just begun, but it could be an added complication before it finally rises.

Anyway, I've made my point, it's in the public domain as to what's going on around here, the other Admins will either do something about him or not..but I'm not holding my breath, once you're in the little clique of SSC Admins, you can basically do what you want.

Shame really, as it just discredits the forum.

Wow, this thread never fails to impress me. The pace of new developments is very impressive. When I DO win the lottery, I'm going to have quite a job choosing an apartment; so much choice!

If you won the Euromillions, which residential development would you pick?

It shouldn't be a worry. There'll be a queue of hotel operators wishing to set up shop in One Blackfriars, given its location alone.

Exactly my thoughts. I used to pass that street in King's Cross every weekday and had no idea that the train sheds could be seen that vividly. The change in glazing has done wonders.

New art gallery for London:


'Saatchi of the North' opens London gallery
Evening Standard
24 April 2013
Quote:
The art collector dubbed the Saatchi of the North today
unveiled the new art gallery where he will show some of his prized exhibits in London.


Frank Cohen, 69, has taken over a former Express Dairies depot in Bloomsbury with fellow collector and friend, Nicolai Frahm, 38, to launch The Dairy Art Centre, where they will put on exhibitions of artists that excite them both.

Mr Cohen, who lives in Wilmslow, Cheshire, and made a fortune from DIY stores, previously opened a foundation in Wolverhampton but then decided he wanted to run a gallery in the capital.

“I’m here on a regular basis. London is where the art scene is. We’re not an institution. We can do what we want. We don’t have to plan three years in advance.” They would continue “as long as it doesn’t kill us,” he said.
