The old Southwark Council building on lynton rd was sold at auction last week for £1,010,000.

It has no planning permission as yet but will be interesting to see what developers do to it.

I thought it quite cheap for 600 sq m of freehold land in SE1. You could build one amazing house there!!

There are two sites practically opposite each other on Lynton Road at the Dunton Road end. One is a building site where foundation work is being carried out and the other is 8 Lynton Road,a single storey building with red shutters. Does anyone know what they are building on the first site?

Does anyone know what is going on there? The nice cherry trees were cut down a few weeks ago and now the ground has been cleared.

In my humble opinion, if the property was sold in open market / auction then it is all fair and square and the council managed to get the best possible price for the asset.
What I am curious about is the fact that Southwark Council reserved and then sold four sites subject to planning (in reality with FULL PLANNING PERMISSTION)!???????
“G.C. Bankside LLP, a 50/50 joint venture partnership between Native Land and Grosvenor, has acquired four sites totalling 46,000 sq ft for £4 million in the Bankside area of the London Borough of Southwark”
