1–5 Amhurst Road, London E89th December 2014
GMS Estates Limited is sad to have to announce that, following building works on a neighbouring site at 7-19 Amhurst Road London E8, there has been a major structural failure to the party wall between its property and the neighbouring construction site. Whilst investigations are being carried out as to ascertain the exact cause of the failure, it is becoming apparent; that a major part of the Company’s building may have to be demolished by the Hackney Borough Engineer.
GMS Estates is working with the Hackney Borough Engineer, who has issued a Dangerous Structures Notice and has control of the site, in trying to salvage as much of the property as possible. Sadly, it will be many months before the building will be able to be fully reinstated. GMS Estates is assisting its tenants in finding new accommodation.
GMS Estates completed a major refurbishment of the property just over one year ago and had spent in excess of £1m in restoring the property to its original condition.
