My first post!

There's a substantial development underway, just north of the Old Street roundabout, and I haven't been able to find any discussion of it. It's close the the currently-abandoned Eagle House site.

When complete in summer 2012, it will comprise:

  • 680 student rooms
  • Office space
  • Retail space
  • 250-room hotel (I think Premier Inn)

There isn't much information to be found on the internet, but you can see some renderings here:

Go to Projects > Current Projects > East Road

The groundworks appear to be complete across the site, and the hotel segment is progressing quickly. At the very least, it will hide the horrendous Cable & Wireless building behind the site :D

I had no idea this had progressed so quickly from the drawing board.

I do like it, I shouldn't.. but I'm into this would be dated look of mis-alligned glazing. I like how the public house sits next to the development - it doesn't work, but I still like it :| It is that generic, 'every big urban area should have a good few of' kind of developments - not high end, but a good ingredient to the fabric - like when you're in the early stages of a sim city like game :D
