Thanks for the update Officer D...I'm excited about this development. Ian Simpson are quality architects and the developer seems to be really switched on about their target market...looks good.

It's a bit crazy, this, isn't it? These retained façades are going to look a bit like a film set...

^I that cross section just look at all the years of skill and knowledge that went into keeping that structure standing using inferior materials! (the steel beams are temporary)

There is a thread in the Construction forum but it isn't one that gets frequently updated.

I'm looking forward to this. Hopefully the art house cinema will really take off. Anyone know what that's going to be in the bottom right of that picture ? I thought the square was going to be completely open on that side.

I thought so too but there's cores going up at a rapid rate, so looks like there's going to be 3 buildings surrounding a triangular square if that's not an oxymoron!

I'm certainly looking forward to having an art house cinema just over the road from me!

Jeez, it looks like a old bakelite wireless! I'll be interested to see how it turns out, I'm liking the development so far.

This probably means nothing to most people here, but it's something I'm quite looking forward to.

The development is called "Forest Hill Central" and will feature 70 apartments with roof terraces and balconies, plus retail/commercial at ground level along with some trees -

http://www.berkeleyhomes.co.uk/index.cfm?articleid=1618

Basically it's the flat, derelict patch of wasteland opposite Forest Hill train station (south-eastern side), which has been empty and crumbling for years. Given the prominent location I'm amazed the site hasn't been developed sooner. It will go some way to improving what is currently a grotty and completely lifeless area.
