I understand that new office buildings are being built on Union Street by Build8.
I thought this land was given over for local projects etc. Now we have more office buildings.
It appears that every spare bit of land is given over to luxury flats or office builds - I guess this is were Southwark Council make their money even if it is taking the heart and soul out of the area.
This part of SE1 is becoming so corporate and dull.
Also the whole area is becoming like a building site - constant flow of lorries. road works, noise etc. Will it ever end.

Totally agree with you AntAnt, the area is looking less residential and more corporate by the day. I live at the lower end of Union Street and it had been like living in a building site for the past year.

I have been told that the building near me should be completed by October so fingers crossed I only have a couple more months to go!
