Have just noticed some activity surrounding the large Empire Square commercial space on Long Lane. Anyone know of any upcoming additions or are they just digging the pavement up again?

According to the concierge staff at Empire Sq, the WHOLE of the commercial space on Long Lane is being taken by TESCO !!! Can't find any reference to this on the planning applications register of Southwark Council, but could be interesting !!!

Right next to their existing store on Long Lane?

Further to my post yesterday, I have been told that the site has been bought, but that its ultimate use has not been finalized. It is NOT Tesco.

There is an application in to widen the possible uses permitted for the pavilion building.

I think that's a different building, actually. The pavilion, colloquially known as The Armadillo, is in the centre of the development, rather than on Long Lane itself.

It will either be a Strada, a Carluccio's, a Leon, a Giraffe, a Wagamama , a Nando's or an EAT...

OK, so that's just conjecture. But leasings in new developments are that predictable, I've found.

strada, carluccios, wagamama...all sound a little too good to be true. i cant figure out how the new owner or whatever can be kept a secret. dont they have to apply for licenses etc??
