What happened with The Foundry at Old Street?

Walked past there last night and the building is still there. I remember protests when the owner kicked the Foundry out and was going to develop it or something?

Was a coffee shop last time I checked, I thought.

Haven’t checked this for years mind.

Would have loved that Tennents neon sign they had in the window.

I walked past there last week but didn’t have a close look. Definitely was a coffee place for a short while a few years ago.

It was going to become a (awful looking) hotel, but that was being scaled back, last I heard.

This is from 4 years ago…

Ha, what a joke. Glad that cylinder of hell wasn’t built at least.

just checking in to say i’m not from london

So many who live here aren’t.
