I blogged on 29 Feb 2012 that the Aedas scheme for Convoys Wharf appeared to be on the rocks.
A few minutes ago the above invitation arrived in my inbox. I am not going to speculate on what we are going to be told, or sold, but a tour of the site is not to be missed. Having knocked down most of the buildings I am intrigued as where on site the discussions are going to take place.
The structure pictured is the listed Olympia Building, originally constructed as a (double) slip cover, under which ships were built for the Royal Navy. It was later part of the City of London's Foreign Cattle Market that was on the site 1871 - 1914.
