Hmm, that didn't come out how I'd hoped! It was a bit hard to tell on the screen when I was outside.

Anyway there is another very similar one right the way at the other end of the docks which has been converted into luxury apartments and I do believe Mel C of The Spice Girls fame owns one.

It'd be sad to see such a wonderful building turned into apartments but part of me thinks that they would be damn cool to live in!

i'd prefer to live there without any kind of conversion work done. like some modern day hunchback of notre dame.

except that i don't have a hunchback.

and i quite like bells.

and i don't speak french.

but you get the picture :)

I'm sure you'll find an old pulley system you could convert to a bell pull!!

It's going to be done up as part of the regeneration of the whole area. About time too! Apparently the whole masterplan is announced tomorrow.

Largest brick building in the world!

wow I agree with MF would prefer to live there without the restoration, the echoes, the shadows, the vastness of the place!

I love it when industrial space is reclaimed for adaptive reuse.

I'm with you Bronxelf! As long as its done right (lots of exposed brick, and arches are good) then they can look and be wonderful places to live :)

Rich - I watched the video how how they think it will look - I *hate* it! lol.
