New Tower Block on St Pauls Avenue
On a rather soggy Saturday, I was out door knocking near the former Genesis site in Willesden Green. Both parts have been sold and are now owned by a hedge fund based in the Channel islands. There is a big planning application for 81 flats, which I can't help feeling is an overdevelopment. Although it is frustrating that the area has been vacant for so long, any new building has to fit in with the area, and Willesden really isn't suited to very big blocks.
