Does anyone know what is happening to that absolutely wonderful warehouse that sits pretty much empty on the corner of Southwark Street and O'Meara Street? There seems to be an art gallery on the ground floor but what else?

The top floor was offered on as is (penthouse) and was rejected.

A licence has been put in for the ground floor as a bar/restaurant.

I believe (correct me if I'm wrong), the rest are to be converted into apartments

erm..i'm lost here!
George, i ask only because i am hopeful that another one of our buildings is not 'raped' like so many before it. If there is some secretive developer's thing going on then I'd rather not know.
If there is going to be a creative use for it then great, tell me more.....

I think it's better to develop buildings like this into flats rather than demolish them or let them fall down.
