As I walk by it virtually everyday I often fantasise about demolishing this genuine carbuncle.

Also The Stage Door was in Waterloo Rd.IMO it would be much improved if the paintwork was stripped off the concrete - the building was much less assertive before the Mirvishes gave it a cosmetic makeover in the late 1980s(wasn't the advance box office for the Old Vic briefly in the ground floor IIRC???)
