Does anyone know anything about the great warehouse building at 55 Great Suffolk Street? I understand it's listed and has hosted the occasional arts events but can't believe it's being allowed to just decay like this? It doesn't look like there's been any attempts to get planning either in the last ten years. Anyone know what the deal is or who owns it?
I've always been puzzled, if a little glad to see this place remain as is. I had a wander around at the last opening that was there 'Hidden London'(?) and was told one of reasons it remains empty is apparently a thin section of land on which it is built facing Loman St belongs to the council. It you take a look you can see how it juts out on that corner.
During the time that it was squatted I got myself invited in so have had a good look around the building - fascinating.
The main reason it hasn't been developed is that there is an almighty crack from top to bottom down the main shared wall.....
