Victoria Coach Station by George Rex, on Flickr
I'm very surprised to hear the Victoria Bus Station is proposed to be demolished, its one of the rare fine streamline art deco buildings of its period in London. This said, I would not be surprised to learn that the coach station were to undergo a major rehab and be converted to spec type offices. Whatever redevelopment happens on the site, the 30s facades and corner tower should be conserved.

I don't think it's a listed building so it's at the mercy of the developer and planners.

There may well be a retention of the art deco face, we'll have to see.

London has a history of destroying art deco buildings.

Earls Court front entrance is another example of one given the green light to be destroyed.

It is very skin deep so it might end up convenient to keep the facade without affecting too much of the new layout. To be able to market a reasonably iconic front like this does add value to residential.

About time!

The Peninsula shouldn't hang around whilst the likes of Nine Elms is taking form.

It's fantastic to see the Greenwich Peninsula (£5bn) expensive project is going ahead and it create a new neighbourhood around the O2 Arena when completed.
