It should be single dedicated owners in such cases, otherwise London turns into a mere facadist coulisse, some sort of soulless Potemkin village. Such buildings need to be saved and need to be kept alive in their small unit separation. It's perfectly possible and makes a thriving diverse place, many old towns in the world prove it.
I agree! What makes this worse though is that the proposed replacement looks horrible and cheap. I dont mind if they knock down old stuff so long as the replacement is better. This just looks shitty

It’s not a developer but a world class educational institution, King’s College London. Apparently they need the space even though just last month they signed up for 300,000sq ft of space in buildings nearby.

What’s worse is Westminster council approved it even though they have had projects across the river called in for public inquiry and written to UNESCO and due to heritage issue yet seem quite happy to way away their heritage here.

I feel so sorry for the monument. Such a magnificent and remarkable structure and yet so badly treated by developers over the years. This latest bland box under values the site yet again. So bored with this it'll do style of office development.

Really not a fan of Enderby place development I must say. It has a 70s council estate feel to it (especially in that first picture).

I thought it felt more like Rotterdam than 70s Council Estate... but I sort of know what you mean

does anyone in this thread know when the decision on whether a third runway should be built at Heathrow or not, will be taken? I think it is really crucial for the airport and its reputation as one of the busiest airports in the world, to have this expasion approved.

I believe the report is due late this year and will be presented to the next government (whoever it is). It will probably recommend to build a third runway. However I highly doubt any government will build it until the 2030s at least because it is seen as political suicide to do so. Such a shame...... Damn NIMBYS

Manhattan Loft Gardens is a great looking building, but the surrounds couldn't be much drabber. Christ, if there was only a bit of height variation in those blocks of flats, it'd go some way to alleviating the oppressiveness.

In addition, the untouched site with black hoardings above is the location of the Penny Brook proposal.
