  1. Drove past there yesterday and the cladding is up to about the 5th floor. CAnt say if that’s new but there looked like there was activity going on there.

Since my last post I came across this short article in the Evening Standard from last August stating that it \has been put up for sale by Irish toxic debt organisation the National Asset Management Agency “http://www.thisislondon.co.uk/business/toxic-sale-for-hoxton-tower-6438039.html
