Hi all,
I am currently looking for a property to buy in SE1 and have seen a flat in a block called "The Rise" in SE1. I'm thinking about putting an offer in for this flat but wanted to check a few things out with the knowledgeable people in SE1... :-)

1. There's a plot of land opposite the flats, near the school. I am concerned that a developer is going to develop another block of flats, which would block any views from the front facing flats in The Rise. Does anyone know if any planning permission has been granted?

2. There seem to be a lot of flats for sale in this block currently - is something happening that I don't know about? Why is everyone selling?!

3. The lifts have floor levels up to 9, however, the building doesn't have this many floors. Are there any plans to add more floors to the building?

4. Is the area safe to live in?

Many thanks for your help!
