This site was one on the fringe of Aldgate ward which I identified as desperately needing redevelopment during my election campaign. Progress has not been as quick as I would have liked as the site was tied up following the credit crunch with the Irish Bank Resolution Corporation (NAMA). However, I can now confirm that it has been acquired by the Partners Group with Marick Real Estate who I have recently met on site.
They are busy progressing the delivery of a slightly amended scheme from the original Foster & Partners scheme and they have now appointed demolition contractor John F Hunt who started work last month. They are endeavouring to ensure that they cause as little inconvenience as possible but I would be happy to assist if there are any issues.
