    Midnight...at the Oasis.

    I came across this development whilst taking a walk around the City with a friend.
    Nestled in quite snug and partially hidden by a bigger neighbour....It was quite a surprise to find it.
    I turned to my my friend and said....OK, lets come back and visit this tonight !
    Sure enough...come the late evening we found ourselves stood outside.
    For reasons I wont go into, my friend lost his bottle right at the last minute.....well actually whilst I was half way in.
    Slightly dissapointed for him that he wouldnt get to enjoy the views over London, I suggested he go take a walk , have a coffee and meet back at the car in a 'while'
    I could see he was dissapointed as he walked away....he doesnt get to come with me very often.... but he wasnt comfortable with the hoards of cameras around the area....and I respect that.

    It took forever for me to find a stairwell...the layout of the lower floors here is complex.....but its all the more sweeter when you do find the way up.
    A lovely climb up in the cool air.....on an extremely well lit project and eventually a lovely playground of a roof to stomp about and enjoy the views.
    Up on the steel....the views out across the city ....well, I never get tired of them.

    Looking to its nearest neighbour...CityPoint....I had a lovely view of the cleaners and one or two other staff milling about.....if only they had looked out of the window they would have seen a dark figure stood atop the steelwork staring back....I almost wanted them to look, just so I could see the reaction !

    You know how I roll....its always the top I'm interested in....so I spent a while up here...had a drink , a snack and took a few snaps before heading back down.

    The floor space is huge ....absolutely massive...and there are some lovely large terraces on the way down.
    They reminded me of a video I saw for 'Midnight at the Oasis'.....Brand New Heavies I think.....with lots of skaters.
    I think this place might get a revisit soon ...for some city high skating fun !
    I'll get video of course ;)

    I'm having some camera issues at the mo...so apologies for the 'softness' of focus in some of the images


    CityPoint....This projects taller neighbour....it's great looking in on the offices as its so close.

    An unusual location for a cricket ground/sports ground...right in the middle of the city.

    Few more from a recent visit showing AGK the views...
    Its gotten a little bigger, with the top steel now covered with a steel walkway and Big A/C boxes/generators etc on the top floor.
    Some huge fans for the A/C as well....these things are big and very solid !


    One step to beyond...

    Well aware that this site is primarily about the high stuff, the underground stuff etc etc, BUT your photos are the most impressive, commercial grade i've ever seen on here, or anywhere on the net come to think, and I have been lurking here since day one!

    Enough said!
