    The former Mango Landin pub took a hit yesterday. Anyone know the story?

    Hm, when I walked home from park yesterday, Brixton Hill was rammed with traffic. Going on Twitter though, it looks like there had been some flooding on the Hill. Maybe it was something to do with this instead? :confused:

    The street is used as a shortcut/traffic jam buster so my guess is some twat trying to beat the traffic took the corner at excessive speed.

    Flats! Loads of flats! No - wait - apartments. For urban professionals!

    The picture of the proposed flats (which is hardly a surprise) looks quite nice actually. Not affordable, but I like the look of them.

    Well at least another Tesco/Sainsbury's isn't going to be there. Not that I'm happy about it becoming more expensive flats

    Ooh, it could be another Sainsburys :D Like, literally because they are getting weirdly close to each other in Clapham....

    If it has no affordable housing then it looks ugly to me.

    It would save a quandary for the people who live half way along BWL currently having to decide which sainsbury's to go to.

    Looking at the image on the general chatter thread it looks like there will be a Sainsburys/Teco/Morrison/Co-Op local on the ground floor. Maybe it will be a Waitrose to reflect the aspirations of the new apartment dwelling urban professionals soaking up the vibrancy and edginess of Brixton

    Well you couldn't expect the locals to walk all 80 metres to the full sized Sainsbury's, or worse 100 metres to the Sainsbury's Local at the other end of the street when the big one is closed.

    it'll only be a waitrose if the residents are very lucky. otherwise it will simply be an overpriced sainsbury's local

    The design looks better than some of the other bland buildings going up.

    They generally always look a fair bit better in the renders than the actual thing.

    It looks crap - there will be no greenery on it when it's finished.

    Saincos-Waitissons-type places are really changing the look of 'suburbs' within the 'towns' in this city. it was all corner pubs that turned into cornershops and now it's these glossy things. It's sort of weird.

    This has been on the cards all along, and I suspect one of the reasons Mango Landin' closed.

    Ever since they demolished the lovely old two storey farm building opposite Josephine Avenue, to cash in on the valuable air space above, it was inevitable that neighbouring buildings would become targets for property developers.

    Wouldn't be surprised if the the brick two storey council building next door is next.

    Looks a bit like the flats that went up after the pub was knocked down at the end of Ferndale road
