Meanwhile, according to Nationwide, Hammersmith and Fulham has seen property price rises of 25% during the year ending 31st January 2013. That's the fastest rise in the UK but H&F Council's assessment was based on inadequate valuations carried out months ago, last summer.
More time to fix the inadequate and rushed design
Lord Richard Rogers, one of Britain’s world famous starchitects,
joined critics of the design. Along with film director
Sir Richard Eyre, actress Francesca Annis, architect Will Alsop and others, Lord Rogers wrote to The Times on the day of the S-PAC to say:
“We believe that there has been insufficient consultation for such an important
site, next to the Grade II listed Hammersmith Bridge, and on this rare
riverside location, in a development in which arts facilities look likely to
play a secondary role to privately-run TV studios.” They called for a “more informed and constructive
discussion about the future of this important arts centre”.
