What's happening to the former hardware store on Tower Bridge Road, you know the one ran by Sikhs? i know they have moved a little to the north, but going around the back of their former shop I noticed that nothing remains and it looks like they're digging deep foundations. Another trendy cafe?
They've spruced up and re-organised the shop, and as far as I know the land behind the row of shops that they are a part of is designated for a terrace of new houses in Alice Street [by the same outfit responsible for the Jam Factory conversion?]. There was an earler posting about it but I not sure what the thread was called.

Harry, I think you may be right - that hole doesn't look as if its anything to do with the Alice St houses so it could be a new shop. It would save us all a lot of guessing if site owners were obliged to put up a small notice informing passers by what was going on. Personally, I like the idea of a tunnel to The Hartley...
I know that the Sweetie Palace shop on the corner of Tower Bridge Road and Rothsay Street will be a dry cleaners. Quite surprisingly actually, since there are seceral dry cleaners already on TBR.
The Hardware shop will go back to their original location, so the owners told me. The chinese take away is being refurbished and will open in about a month.
