Does anyone know what's happening to the (derelict?) buildings on the north side of Flat Iron Square - the ones tucked against the railway bridge?

They've been boarded/bricked up for a while and since the rest of the revamping of the square seems to have been finished now, I was wondering whether anything is happening to the buildings?

They are listed buildings and are owned by Network Rail.

They are being rebuilt/restored as restaurants.

No word yet as to the tenants.

Thanks very much indeed for this.

Another question: the London Centre of Contemporary Music is currently located on the opposite corner of O'Meara Street (I think the actual address is 50-52 Union street).

In due course they are relocating to the new Music Box building.

Once they've moved out, do we know what will be happening to their current location?

LCCM had two sites - the old building which is now The Music Box, plus the Union Street premises. They outgrew the original Union Street building a few years back so took on additional space in the now demolished building. Not sure if they're giving up the original Union Street premises if / when they move into The Music Box.

Anyone know what is going on at Island Cafe today? Looks like it's cordoned off with police tape... :(
