Check out this property for sale on PrimeLocation!
Holy shit! I never thought I would live to see the day when a two-bedroomed flat in Nine Elms was £11 million.
I would want a reduction on the price, maybe to a cool ten million, for the 'Indoor/Outdoor Swimming Poo' as per the advert.
Looks like a grim place to live right now. All the green space they're getting for the whole area is this new 'Linear Park' which might end up a bit like the QE Olympic park i.e. not very park like. I suspect the whole area will end up a bit like the Battersea riverside developments......dead & soulless.
I don't know what I expected for 11m quid but I guess it wasn't that.
It's just an ordinary and not very large or upmarket flat.
The super rich are getting ripped off proper
That has to be a decimal point error.
price per square foot=£15667
size of flat = 750 sq ft
yeh but they're so super rich that they don't care.
Someone has got the price wrong and then done a square footage calculation which incorporates the error.
Do a search for flats in London in the £8m to £10m range. That's penthouse category. Private roof terraces, double height rooms, multiple bedrooms and certainly not crappy little kitchens at the end of weird triangular lounges. No, that's a £1m flat.
Yeah, here it is at the right price. It still clicks through despite saying error http://www.right move.co.uk/new-homes-for-sale/property-36299877.html

no super rich person would touch a flat that cost a mere £1m.
even over £1m for that is fucking madness.
yes. but that's the way of the world.
Sure is, you get no separate kitchen and a crappy little balcony. Do people really pay a million to live in places like this?
I could kind of comprehend it if it was in a prime area...but still...
At least that place was relatively well insulated, modern, had two beds. Get this, in Peckham

Someone might have bought it because it was a prefab. I am sure that pushed up the price.
i'm sure it's the land they paid for, not the building.
I was with a wide group of people on a course today. We concluded that there is no escaping gentrification. The concensus was virtually all of London is now gentrified or about to become so.
The much-loved 99p Store in Streatham has become a Poundland.
I fear gentrification is upon us.
Yep. It's a corner plot, so if they're looking to build on-street terraces/"town houses", they can squeeze 2 or 3 gardenless homes into that piece of land, or even a small block of 6+ flats.
It's difficult to feel sorry for the owners, but someone has cocked up (didnt want to start a new thread just for this)

"It's just an old building. It's nothing to do with the work." Cos Britain is full of old houses just falling down all over the place all the time...
It's not though. It's some person trying to greatly increase the size of his house to accommodate his wine cellar, his cinema and something else.
Had the project been managed properly, that would not have happened.
Well, the management of the project is part of the work, surely.
incredibly, a new costa coffee double fronted is opening up in the mighty gentrification resistant Thornton Heath
Given the scarcity of acro-props in the wreckage/visible in the semi-intact rooms, then the job was either being skimped, or the lack of effective support during the excavations was deliberate.
It wouldn't be the first time a property-owner had got creative with renovations in order to end up with a cleared plot.
Finally seen what they are doing to the stairs at London Bridge
These are some ugly motherfucking stairs.
It looks like a giant deformed shopping trolley trying to escape from the river.
