Obviously even more bits will open when the Elizabeth Line platforms open.

It's surprising it has a place on the monopoly board or the tube map
when the street itself doesn't exist.

Hull

Heck TfL have even banned employees from having online shopping
deliveries delivered to their workplace in order to cut down on
the numbers of "white vans" milling around.


Whatever happened to that scheme to have online shopping delivered to
your suburban station, for collection on the way home?

I understand 55 Broadway is being retained and is subject to a sale and lease back arrangement. This replaced the planned sale and conversion
to flats. Looking at the comments under DG's article it seems people are being moved from right across the TfL building portfolio including
Windsor House which (I think) is being vacated.


That's interesting (and surprising) -- I though the sale and
conversion of 55 Broadway into flats was a done deal. I even did a
tour of the building that was stated to be one of the last before TfL
moved out, and some parts already appeared to be empty.


Perhaps the new owner has had some vacant possession in order to do
refurbishments?

Conversion into flats would have needed much more than
'refurbishment'. In any case, it just looked like some rooms were no
longer in use, but nothing had been done to them.

You don't think it's vaguely possible that with TfL having signed a
sale/leaseback agreement that the new owner might be refurbishing them
as offices?

That was then, this is now.

I did one shortly after in January this year as I thought there would
not be another opportunity, but only this morning I got an email
telling me the window was open for bookings for it and other places
today for those on their list. For new customers bookings can be made
from Wednesday/22.

Hasn't the halt in the development plan been caused by the present
Mayor getting a bit fed up with many such developments becoming an
investment vehicle for Russian Oligarchs etc to the detriment of the
needs of residential Londoners and stuck his oar in?


Perhaps so, but TfL staying there also doesn't release any new
residential space.

Quite possibly now, but that certainly wasn't the plan when I toured
the building. And if it's now a sale and leaseback deal, any
refurbishment would presumably be up to TfL.
