There's an exhibition at Canada Water library today (till 2:30) by Kings College about their plans for the Mulberry business park, SE16
Yes, but there still is a little cubby hole there, and luckily these are not in the centre of town where they'd no doubt be ideal spots for rough sleepers or for people to piss in. They'd still be good mugging spots though.^^My first thought about the wonky placement was "Ooh, jaunty, I love it." My second thought was "But won't those gaps between the buildings be dark and sinister?" My third thought was "By the looks of the plan, the alleys will be blocked off anyway. I think I'll assume the architects know what they're doing..."
I've known a few people closer to Greenland Dock who moved after constant break in's into the secure parking or a couple of home invasions from people pretending to be Royal Mail. But I suspect that has something to do with being closer to the Pepys estate!Seems a strange concern to me. I've lived in Rotherhithe for 7 years and never heard of a mugging, and I can't imagine the arrival of a King's College campus would bring a crime wave to the area, even if there are some nooks between buildings. A fox hiding, maybe, or a couple of students snogging. Still, when we see the full plans I'll be interested to find out how they're planning to treat those spaces.
Anyone know who the architects are? I failed to ask at the exhibition.
