I should have made this clear but this was more that show the type of
property that I had in mind and to see what people think. I didn't
necessarily mean this EXACT property.
I personally would rather buy something that needs fixing, put in the
work and possibly get it finished professionally. As opposed to buying a
newly built/redeveloped building an an inflated price. Is that the
general thinking here or am I kidding myself?
Either way it would be interesting what price it
goes for! Also this property is being auctioned off on behalf of the
Hackney Council, it may be worth approaching them directly with our
proposal and see if they have something similar building in the area,
that maybe isn't on the market yet. Councils are under pressure to bring
abandoned building back into use.
