Hole in the wall 5
2 April 2010
Ever since they discovered the unexploded bomb, they’ve been getting a lot more work done at that construction site. I don’t think the two things can be related. But I’m just saying.
The hole in the wall isn’t a hole any more. The concrete outlines of three shopfronts are poking up around the corrugated fence. I expect two or three storeys of one-bedroom flats will go to top it off: overpriced, thin-walled, with juliet balconies. Everything down by the docks is built like that.
We still don’t know what will be behind the shopfronts, which is what will make the difference. Not another estate agent, please, or another bank. Ideally, a shop where people actually sell things.
