Purchase Of Crossrail Sites Begins

1710_astoria.jpgSites around Tottenham Court Road were bought up today. Some thirteen buildings in total including, sadly, the Astoria, will be bought and demolished to make way for a comprehensive re-build of the station, transforming it into a joint Underground and Crossrail hub. The Astoria's fate has been sealed for some months, and while we're fully behind the cross-London rail project, the destruction of such a venue will be a black day for London's live music scene.

Very sad that we are losing this musical icon..I hope the future incarnation of this area befits its heritage..
