This huge light industrial warehouse estate was sold to developers in 2014 since which time the acceleration of rebuilding in the whole area has become a frenzied dash. Five multi story condos now stand in place of the low rise business park and are nearing completion. During the process, thousands of heavy transport and cement trucks have conveyed the materials into place, now internal fittings and furniture delivery vans queue all along Creekside.
We have a good sequence of images from the Ha’penny Hatch tracking the demolition and rebuilding process. more should have been done to track the changes and transformations. Loss of light and endless congestion has further degraded the quality of existence in the surrounding streets and housing estates and darkness looms over the low lying creek.
