Charismatic philanthropist John Caudwell has come up with an ingenious idea to help alleviate London’s accute homelessness crisis which is set to go in one direction – up!
He has been granted permission to develop a Mayfair car park into ultra high end residential apartments, but wants to add an extra two storeys into the “thin air” above – and donate the proceeds to strapped for cash London councils.
The Thin Air Foundation was launched today and has a petition form you can sign.
Given the magnitude of the housing crisis, we think any injection of funds is a good thing. The offer comes with no strings attached and wouldn’t cost the tax payer a penny.
The development itself promises to trump all others for desirability and should John decide to add an office section, BBP is staking a claim on the first swish space.
