Beware Of The Flowers
My, my, my. Remember those terrible Durnsford Street buildings? You know – the nasty historic ones that were too dangerous to be allowed to remain standing? The ones the surveyor was scared to even enter for fear they might come crashing down around his ears? The ones that were so badly gone that all there was to do was pull ‘em down and replace ’em with a garbage compactor?
Well, Paul just sent me the above picture, and a sight for sore eyes it is too. I don’t know whether this is a temporary reprieve or whether Greenwich Hospital Trust have had a change of heart over one of the dodgiest parts of its market redevelopment proposals, but it’s going to be hard to argue these pretty little buildings are dangerous now.
I wish our budding florist the very best – and hope this is GHT actually listening to local people’s concerns about the delicate heritage of the area at last. Whatever next? Keeping the cobbles? Not building a skyscraper hotel in the middle of the market? The Phantom is crossing spectral fingers…
