I thought this was supposed to be happening. But then a new bar has just opened in one of the arcade buildings, so now I'm not sure.

Assuming you are talking about the Aylesham centre, I was under the impression it was due for complete redevelopment, including a 20 storey block of flats. But again... no news for ages. Not sure I'm a fan of the scheme, but hey.

The Peckham Rye station upgrade is happening - they've moved businesses out and are working out of sight now.

It's still got a way to go though ... [www.southwark.gov.uk].

There was meant to be a development adjacent to Co-Op House - but not heard a lot about it since various changes promised about the back of it, contrastingly the development next to Canavans (Christmas Yard) seems to be going along as fast as the workmen can build it.

Not heard much about the development of the Coal Line - but there was an update to the website in July about looking for funding.

Peckham Rye Lido project is still going along (most here believe it can't happen) with an update in August

Then why has a brand new tenant just moved into one of the buildings (CLF Art Lounge)? Or is that just a temporary pop-up?

The shops on Blenheim Grove are being refurbished not being demolished.

What happened to the proposed Open Station Square project. Not going to happen. ???

Yeah I know the buildings on Blenheim Grove are being refurbished. But the new business I was referring to is not on Blenheim Grove, it is in front of the station - clearly inside the area marked for demolition as part of phase 2. Maybe it's just short lease for a very cheap price, I don't know. But they've gone to quite a bit of effort, it doesn't really feel "temporary" to me.

Not a day too soon, whenever it comes. It is a complete hole, especially the dank, dark tunnel with the cafe leading to the building itself. Take a look up and see the pigeon crap encrusted all over. How the council can have let it get to this state and still have cafes and food shops there is beyond me.

Well, that's encouraging!

So CLF Art Lounge is a 1 year pop? OK, thanks!
