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 saw this at the weekend from Old Street. Was amazed by how fast it's come along, although it's been a while since I've actually got out of the station facing in it's direction. I was pleasantly surprised. Looks good in context. The bricked up window bits facing east are a bit odd though!
