The legal agreement attached to the 2010 planning permission obliges Purelake to 'restore and refurbish' the building, with the restoration and refurbishment works to be agreed with and approved by Lewisham Council.
To my knowledge, the agreed and approved works focus largely on the external parts of the building, although some internal changes have been agreed:
- The unauthorised floor must be removed
- The drinking corridor tiles (which were carefully removed from the building prior to its substantial demotion) must be installed inside the building, adjacent to the main door
If fit out is ultimately left to a future occupier, it's worth bearing in mind - lest anybody be concerned - that any sale price or rental agreement would take into account fit out costs. As a result, a requirement for the future occupier to fit out the building need not be a barrier to occupation of the building - unless Purelake want to hold out for an unreasonable sale price or rent.
