I was in Southwark Street at the weekend and noticed that the buildings on the corner of Sumner Street and Southwark Street(behind Tate Modern and adjacent to the Bankside 123 buildings)) have been demolished to leave a very large site. Does anybody know what new development will be built on this site?
Looks like it should be interesting. Not a fan of huge towers in residential areas, but a new development beats a run-down industrial estate in my book.
A nice big park would have been best, though.
Oh, yeah. Has anyone seen the mountainous pile of rubble on the site? I've been watching as they deconstructed the 4-storey office block and warehouse buildings, separated out the metal and other waste, and ground down every chunk using a machine the size of a double decker. The rocky chunks are now about the size of golf balls. Truly an awesome feat.
