Coming Soon......not

This development of flats (apartments) has been like this for about 3 years. So even in the south east not everything is rosy.

I wonder if the folks who bought off plan are sleeping on park benches while waiting for the roof to go on it, Bill?
Bill Phillips: They could have a long wait Ray
Kinda sad. I like how the sign looks lit up!
Bill Phillips: Not much fun for the houses that sit opposite this!

Waiting for some money I guess. So sad.
Great shot though, I love the way the iron pins are on top of the concrete pillars.
Bill Phillips: I think the developer went bust but it is perhaps not quite so simple as that

I thought the Olympic games would bring forward all developments - a sad image, and your treatment enhances that melncholic feeling.
Bill Phillips: I think there is more to this site than meets the eye Philine.

My visit to central London a few weeks ago made it clear that building projects in the area were in full swing.
Bill Phillips: This is Colnbrook near Slough, an area that in the past has not known recession

It's the recession innit!
Bill Phillips: I would never have worked that out, thanks Chris
A sign of the times Bill.
Bill Phillips: Indeed Latte. I suspect that eventually this will be demolished and something else built.

A fine photo Bill, I like the muted colour, ramps up the atmosphere.
Bill Phillips: not bad for a little Fuji compact!

Sign of the times Bill.
Bill Phillips: These have been like this for at least 3 years Peter!
They obviously ran out of money before they paid for the electricity.
Bill Phillips: By the look of it they ran out of money almost before they began!
If it takes as long to finish building this as it did to knock down the old hospital in Loughborough which stood empty and vandalised for many years then future tenants are in for a long wait.
Bill Phillips: I imagine this will be bought atr some time and they will start all over again
That dark cloud hovering over the abandoned structure gives the whole image a foreboding atmosphere, Bill. A sad sight to see.
Bill Phillips: Not as bad as in several EU countries though Beverly where complete housing developments have been built and lie empty
Social commentary eh! No doubt make a better shot at this stage than it ever will finished.
Bill Phillips: Very true John, finished it will be overpriced shoe boxes probably
You should see the number of silent tower cranes in Spain, Bill!
Bill Phillips: So I believe Tom. This is nothing by comparison

Perhaps "soon" is a relative word? Maybe Heathrow Gateway will be swept aside when the 3rd runway is built? Maybe the developers have realised that no-one will buy the apartments unless they are either plane spotters or stone deaf.
This could have been shot in Africa for me Bill!
