Middlesex Hospital was here

This large hole left by the levelling of Middlesex hospital is a very visual sign of the credit crunch. The planned complex of shops, flats and penthouses (is there a plural for that - penti?) which was to be called 'Noho Square' is no longer viable. Candy the construction company who bought the site, have dissappeared. Westminster council I believe now own it, having bought at a vastly reduced price. So what will it be? At the moment it's just a big boarded up hole. Lots of cafes sprang up around the site for workers and then potential residential customers, they too are feeling the pinch.
