Protest against the planned building of Taylor Wimpey’s overscaled The Denizen luxury apartment complex, which will steal sunlight from schools, homes & Fortune Street Park. Council tenants will lose up to 70% of the light from their living rooms. Denizen luxury apartments are being marketed off-plan to ghost home investors in South East Asia who won’t rent out or live in these dwellings; they’ll just leave them empty on the assumption they’ll accrue value in the overheated central London property market.
The banners and the development site face each other across Fann Street, at the junction with Golden Lane, London EC1.
“A spectre is haunting the cynical overdevelopment that characterises London’s buy to leave property boom, the spectre of modernism!” #savegoldenlane
