I walked past the South Eastern Railway Building on Tooley St yesterday and the section between the Southwark Playhouse and the Tower Bridge Paintballing appears to have undergone a total redevelopment inside. Looks like a massive space lit with arcs of white lights. Pretty impressive. Does anyone know what it is going to be used for? Is it part of the Southwark Playhouse?

Remember reading about it a while ago. Found this on the Team London Bridge Website.

They are calling it a 'pocket plaza'!

The 'pocket plaza' is Shipwright Yard itself - I think Scott77 is talking about an indoor space.

Could it be bart of the T47 sports complex? The entrance is on St Thomas' Street but the way the various arches round there join up gets quite confusing.

Was wondering what it was as I walked past it this morning on Tooley Street, number 72 I think. It did look pretty impressive through the doors.

Hi there

It's going to be a large Chinese restaurant when it opens, though we don't yet know when this will be. Once we know more, we'll let you know too.

Thanks Georgina. Are we talking a chain (ie Wagamama 's sytle) or a unique place? Its going to be very large - whatever it is!

Platform Bar is opening in the old Rembrandt's restaurant a bit more towards On Your Bike. I haven't managed to get any more info about the Chinese restaurant yet I'm afraid.

The sign has gone up above the doors to this new restaurant. Its called Tuli. Can't seem to track down any further info on line... seems to be in the final stages of the renovation. Will be interesting to see what they have done with the space.

Didn't notice at the time that the sign says 'restauraut' [sic]
