As foreseen yesterday, today was indeed, although well worth the strain, … strenuous. And I am now determined to keep this posting short, unlike last night’s exhausted ramble.
In among yesterday’s sunshine and strenuosity, I photoed these photos, of progress on the Broadway:
They’ll be posh flats, basically. I seem to recall recently wondering if this project would ever make a profit. Well, another photo I photoed yesterday was this, which has a bearing on that matter:
Although, that could just be inflation happening before anyone official is prepared to talk about it already being on that sort of scary scale. But, even if inflation is now surging, the fact that house prices are also surging suggests that houses, or in this case flats, are at least keeping their value.
These new places will not be to all tastes, because new buildings seldom are. But I think I’m going to rather like them. Apart from down at ground level, where all new modernist buildings are invariably dull and unwelcoming, on account of modernists not knowing how to do front doors, but refusing to do them anciently, which would cheer things up no end. But like I say, they refuse to do that.
And that’s your lot for today. I’m off to bed now.
One thought on “Quota gallery of Broadway progress”
One of the very few things I miss about full time work is that the HQ of my last employer was on Victoria St which over the last decade has been constantly interesting in terms of architectural development. Thanks for reminding me I must make the effort to come into town and observe its continued progress!
