If it holds true to the current London real estate market, this will end up a structure that only Russian gangsters and Saudi oil sheiks can afford.
That’s a dumb question MaryAnn – and we should be asking dumb questions like this more often! The only benefit you and I will get out of this “saving” is that that part of Soho will continue to look much like it did before they gutted the building to built apartments we can’t afford to live in! It reminds me of how somebody won an award here in Australia for designing a rehabilitation scheme for a local creek that had been destroyed by a freeway project. To my mind, the creek looked pretty good before they tore it to pieces to build the freeway!
But it means more money for someone who’s already rich! That’s got to be a good thing, right? All the big political parties support it.
