Second class Waterloo in need of an upgrade
18 November 2013
While it has been a bumper year for the South Bank, with record levels of office space Take-up and Investment, the recent High Court ruling of a judicial review for Elizabeth House, 39 York Road and the impending public inquiry into the proposed redevelopment of the Shell Centre, 2 York Road, just serve to highlight the continued stalled progress in Waterloo, one of the most important sub markets in the South Bank.
