IMAX cinema and 12-year-old British Library addition among at-risk buildings


Lambeth owns the freehold of the IMAX site and agreed a few months ago to spend £500k on feasilibity for a tall building as the 'apex' of the emerging cluster... costs to be shared with TfL, who own the freehold of the land surrounding the IMAX and have been 'consulting' for the last 18 months on the peninsularisation of the IMAX, which will create an even more log-jammed junction, but is worth millions to both authorities in terms of real estate. The only saving grace is that this is a piece of feather-in-her-cap flotsam from Sue Foster (the key champion of the Garden Bridge at Lambeth, but who was recently 'let go' and has washed up at RBKC responsible for Grenfell) and her Lambeth underling Sandra Roebuck, who has subsequently moved sideways... So, as usual, the hope is that Lambeth will incompetently defend the indefensible long after the caravan has departed, marching to the drum of its collective amnesia
