In this case it probably just means 'new'.
Would "fucking pricey" suit sir better?
Oh for fuck's sake. Look what they're calling it. "The Edge."
(CH1 - sorry, missed your earlier post)
I'm sure they are. I wasn't commenting on their affordability, more the use of language in marketing and sales these days. Which I dislike.
I was looking at a property ad in west Norwood the other day and the estate agent had written that the area was benefiting from 'recent gentrification'. Which I think is a frankly stupid and disrespectful thing to say. These words lose their meaning when used so freely and without any thought to what they actually mean.
The Edge says:
What's it got to do with him anyway?
Not him, the other one, Adam is it? I saw him backstage at a gig and he didn't have his arms in his jacket sleeves. The jacket (gold sequins) was resting on his shoulders. It took all of my might not to say a word.
Pretty lively on the street right now opposite the block. A huge row broke out between various men and women. Lots of small scuffles until one guy walked away bellowing, "SOMEONE HAS TO DIE!".
Cue Shrub & Shutter customers hastily retreating back into the bar!
I was looking at the back of the terrace earlier in the week (now the office buildings have been demolished). Looks like Shrub & Shutter may have a 2 storey annex at the back?
I remember they applied for that ages ago.
Now I've got the delights of the soundtrack of luxury apartments being built opposite me for the next year or so.
It won't take that long surely? They are being "released" in September!
Blimey that would be quick work. Its going to block my view of the viaduct, so no more steam engine views for me. Yuppies Killed My Steam Engine Vista
It is quite normal these days for developers to sell flats as yet unbuilt. "Released" means released on the market, not actually constructed in real bricks yet.
It's going to be lovely to have a new 'oiks keep away' gated road to complement the one in Brixton Square.
I hope they have uniformed staff like in Brixton Square.
P.S. some MP asked a question in the house today regarding Taylor Wimpey malpractice. Doesn't sound too promising for buyers.

They have uniformed staff in Brixton Square? Where have you seen them?
I have to take a quarterly newsletter to a couple of members of a local society in there. There is a concierge office at the back where they hang out (normally only one is on duty at a time).
If you choose to make a delivery when the solo attendant has popped out for a sarnie you are buggered (so to speak).
same here plus I currently get an internal massage from the vibrations of their enormous jack hammer thingy
Had a bit of a rant
Brixton Edge contemporary housing development. Feel the loud trains rumbling by. NOW LIVE IT!
Gramsci editor a couple of cuttings from this week's Press re Taylor Wimpey's escalating leases. Seems Taylor Wimpey leases are the new PPI scandal for those who got caught out
Summat's kicked off - there's nine police cars outside Morleys by Gresham Rd right now and lots of shouting.
Here's a short video of the kerfuffle
I saw a Strong and Stable My Arse poster at the Camberwell end of Coldharbour Lane (well just around the corner). I was on my bike so couldn't get a snap.
Taken in Soho.
Local boy Jeremy Deller apparently.
Got a pic of the one under the railway arches in Herne Hill
Argh, it looks like the leak is back.
It was only ever bodged up by the Fire Service and obviously Lambeth don't give a shit. They'd love to see the building disappear.
