that's a rose tinted view ,
It was the Globe theatre and the Tate modern ,and the renovation of Borough Market
that put Southwark's riverside on the map,
The Tate modern nearly ended up as a block of flats, and Southwark council took some time to come round to the idea of the globe, both of which happened in the late 90's
Before the Tate modern and globe were created no one walked up the river ,it was deserted ,
And that building on clink street mentioned in the article is just leeching of the crowds waking from the globe to borough market.
And that article also make no mention of the subject of this thread the Tate tower which was and still is as far as I'm aware still apposed by the Tate modern.
