I asked the concierge

As for now the Exchange development is safe but this might change anytime. Police and Army are around and investigating.

Hi all,
I tried to get home at half 4 this afternoon and it's still cordoned off. Wasn't allowed to pop in at all. The police didn't seem to have any info on the progress. Just letting you know in case you're on your way back home now!

Update - am back in the flat. The Exchange is available to access once again!

Hope everyone got back in ok last night.

Random question: How does one clean the outside of one's windows? I'm on the 5th floor.

Any ideas?

I assume that our service charge would cover external window cleaning, for windows that you can't clean yourself.

Most of ours can be washed from the balcony - but the ones that can't are pretty mucky!

Hi Lisa, i am going to write Kara an email to ask about window cleaning. Mine are pretty grubby and impossible to clean myself

I'm not sure if the SC covers the cleaning of windows but let's see what Kara says. Let us know Mel.

Has anyone on this thread had any run-ins with the new parking management company yet? We're going round the houses with them regarding a couple of charges they've tried to levy on us and was wondering if anyone's going through something similar.

Ooh let us know Mel F.

Hate to jump on the band wagon but I'd also like to know what's going on with the communal garden. I know it's not quite bloom time yet but a lot of the plants look dead to me, and when's that netting being taken off the grass? Or is it? Someone said they thought it stays on...


A few of us should meet up for a coffee like we planned to when we moved in. It's been a long time interacting on here without putting faces to internet profiles! :) Be nice to know a few of my neighbours.

Do you have a private facebook group for The Exchange?

It really does help to get people together and organised within your block, and (for all its ills) is a nice avenue of introduction to your neighbours. "Oh yeah I saw your post on the group about that" etc.

We have one for our block (on the other side of Alscot Road) and it is very useful.
