The Royal Alexandra Quarter

In 2004
In 2015. Converted to luxury flats 
10 years or so ago Thomas Lainson's Queen Ann style, red brick and terracotta children's hospital was looking sad and neglected and its future was in considerable doubt. Now, with its transformation into luxury flats, it is looking good once more. The removal of the top floor of the balconies has revealed more of the roof-line and provided a south-facing terrace. The exterior has been cleaned and renovated. It looks safe for another 100 years or so, by which time its history and architecture will, no doubt, be even more prized than it is today.

All three of the south-facing balcony flats  have been bought by one person who is combining them into one large apartment. BH2015/00533 refers.
