Demolition of the former Bank of England, Pilgrim Street

  • Description

    "See photo from 2010 here [[1680933]] The left part of the building has already been removed along with the derelict properties around Bell's Close [[1680861]] Much of east Pilgrim Street is now owned by the Aldersgate company of the billionaires, David and Simon Reuben. The whole east side is destined for redevelopment going as far north as the former Odeon Cinema [[1695200]]. But will more shops succeed in this part of town that formerly wouldn't support Richard Grainger's, Royal Arcade, built nearby in 1831-32 [[1673177]]" Photo by Andrew Curtis, 2012.
