As far as I was aware,it was always the intention of Sellars to buy New London Bridge House in order to pull it down and rebuild the London Bridge Tower(the shard of glass)on the site.
I am an optimist on this one also and am hoping the public enquiry will show that it is a building worth building that will improve the whole area.A new bus station and improvements to London Bridge Station
have always been in the original plans.
Southwark council and the Mayor have both supported the building,with objections coming from English Heritage with the usual "damage to protected views of St.Pauls' and other historical buildings" argument.
I can't wait to find out what is going to happen.The building is rather stunning and will bring the skyline of London together like no other building........you only have to look at the various computer generated images circulating on the internet to see that.
