The proposal; http://idox.hackney.gov.uk/WAM/showCaseFile.do?action=show&appType=Planning&appNumber=2012/3006

Demolition of the existing building and erection of a six storey building to provide 107 residential units (49×1 36×2 12×3 and 10×4 beds) including balconies and terraces to front and rear a 41 bed extra care home ancillary communal facilities 31 car..Seems a bit odd to me to demolish a 6-storey brick block and replace it with a 6-storey brick block. But I’m sure they’ve done the maths.”
