No! Waitrose are referring to Algarve/Metro House currently vacant - apart from so called 'squatters' till March 2015 I believe. Then 'the fun' may start,,,,,,,, the apartments adjacent are LBS run and are fairly safe to my knowledge.

Yes, us in Styles House aren't going quietly into the night! We survived 15 years of redevelopment plans and we can see off a Waitrose.

However, it will be interesting to see what happens at Algarve House, but we are keen on the Council buying it, given how badly NorthStar have managed it. We think it's a good site for a low rise block of council flats, given they want to build 11,000.

Well that could be a good earner for the council. They buy Algarve House, build a block of flats and rent the ground floor space to Waitrose. We'd be very happy for it to become part of Styles House; 'the tower, the annexe, and the Waitrose block'!

I like your thinking, Karen.

Locals could call into Waitrose in their fluffy slippers and dressing gowns for a free cup of morning coffee,just think how much money we'd save!
