I like this scheme, it is well mannered and a little quirky at the same time - the perfect combination for London.

If they redevelop Old Brewer's Yard, there will be a direct path from St Martin's Courtyard through to Mercers Walk and to Old Brewer's Yard. I'll be surprised if CapCo doesn't have any preliminary plans to redevelop the area.

There have been a lot of material changes and lot's of details changed. I'm not sure the quirkiness has been translated well into the finished product. Well made yes, but I liked the varied colour differences in the bricks and shopfronts in the planning application. It now has a more corporate feel which is a pity.

yeah not exactly Neals Yard! God knows why that street is still a road though, totally cramps its style. I got the feeling the stretch just feels a touch too cold and certainly a dead end to warrant exploration, even with a couple of cafes, this was just before the arch was opened although I am not sure if even that links up anywhere. Cafe tables and shop signs on the street would change that instantly.

The arch connects right through to the centre of Covent Garden! Footfall in Floral St is actually already high and flagship boutiques of brands like Paul Smith are located there. I walk down it a lot because it avoids the masses of Long Acre and Covent Garden at peak times. It is very dark though, so little chance of tables outside.

It’s a great little development either way.

I think this looks great but, looking at the early renders above, it's just a shame it's not as great as it could have been. A lot of the charm of the original proposal has been lost for sure.

It think it might be actually incorporated into one of the shops.

It's nice but you would think they would have sorted out the sewers down there first!
