I think we may have discussed this before but I know not where.

As the new More London buildings are nearing completion I was wondering if anyone has any information on the plans for the empty pubs, terraced houses, and The Fire Station on Tooley Street?

Who is dealing with this at Southwark Council and More London?

As far as I know they are all to be retained, well at least the facades, and a glass top two (ish) floors of the terrace will be constructed and they will be used for offices and the like.

The planning officer at Southwark is part time (naturally) and is called Bridin O'Connor. As for More London I don't know who to contact.

They are to be retained and brought back to life as JQL suggested. There are proposals to re-instate the use of the Antigallican and St. Johns Tavern as bars/restaurants [style of which is subject to whoever takes on the lease] with 'flexible workspace' [whatever that means] on the upper floors. The bits in between are being remodelled as mixed use, with the facades of 163-169 largely retained and new glazed extensions above 155-161, so that the terrace will be largely 4 story, with the slightly taller Tavern as existing and refurbished
