There's the 5,000 square feet M & S food market in that big black building facing the end of Bermondsey Street
. Opening "2003". As yet unbuilt, across a pedestrian square with a water feature and some trees, will be (yet another) hotel.
Then there's Unicorn (kiddies) Theatre further towards Tower Bridge Road
And then there's another supermarket in the really big (unbuilt) building in the middle of the site. This was going to be on the ground floor of a smaller office block directly on Tooley Street
, but the smallish building was too small, so More London moved the supermarket space to the really big (unbuilt) building in the middle of the site. If you want a really big building for you and about 4000 of your office chums, then More London want to hear from you. Then they will purpose-build the really big building that will house the supermarket in the middle of the site.
And there's a whole street of retail (OK, Starbucks
and Café Nero) going diagonally from Hays' Galleria towards Palais de Ken. This will create a nice walk through from London Bridge Station
to Tower Bridge.
BTW the loony road works are "all TfL's fault" for splitting a straightforward project into three parts with three different contractors.
