Just how ugly does a building have to be so nobody likes it? Am surprised the concrete monstrosity at 157 Waterloo Road will be missed…

I'm a bit sad that the Church Mission society building's due to be demolished - I find the inscription above the door inspiring, even though I'm not a Christian, both spiritually and aesthetically. One year I gave my parents a framed photo of it (they're christian) and it often gets compliments - it's so typographically striking and unusual! But my other concern is the planned site for the hotel - isn't this where Masters SuperFish is, and if so, where will they go?

A revised application has gone in for a 12-storey, 327-bed Hilton hotel on the Partnership House site at 157 Waterloo Road - details here.

A scaled-down proposal for the Partnership House site was approved last night:

Just trying to find a hotel for New Year's Eve for some visitors and a couple of updates on these hotels:

The H10 hotel at St George's Circus is now on the H10 website - opening 2010 - it's listed as a 4 star hotel and the facilities look pretty good. It's apparently near Lambert North!

Travelodge, Waterloo Road - sign up on the building saying rooms from £29 but nothing on the Travelodge website as yet. Was originally meant to be 'Winter 2009' but this seems to indicate March 2010 at earliest: http://www.ventuk.com/projects/latestprojects.php

Also our Chief Exec has hinted on his blog that the London ambulance HQ will be moving from Waterloo road in the next 2 years or so.

Apparently the HQ is not big enough now , and no doubt the ground its on will sell for a nice price , probably gonna be yet another hotel in its place as well !!

(no idea where we are moving to )

This is bad news, particularly for the shops and takeaways on the Waterloo Road - there's always folk from the LAC in them.

I think there will be some people , especially people who live in the vicinity of The church mission to see it go. After the all night illegal rave parties that went on there for a while (some ran for 3 or 4 days ), with the constant music thumping out and various people coming and going at every hour of the day. Then after the place was boarded up , loads of local homeless moved in and word spread amongst various groups and each evening you would see large groups go in there for the night . I rememebr watching the mass police raid that went in to clear everyone out and the area being taped off after a young males body was found inside, after being beaten to death.

At least then the owners of the building boarded the place up properly , and its recently had a bit of a clean up as well !

Yep , i'd say that the fish+chip shop and the chinese opposite the LAS HQ will suffer a loss of quite a large customer base . So will the corner shop opposite as well (which is actually quite a handy place to shop now since it was refurbished and revamped from the grubby off licence it used to be )
