White Star Building Hit By Storms-James Street Closed.

They spent a fortune on the "Three Black Coffins" at Mann Island while The White Star Building on the corner of James Street and the Strand lies rotting waiting for it to fall down so the site can be developed. Today it has happened with parts of the building falling off.
Built by Norman Shaw to a similar design of Scotland Yard with bands of brick and white Portland stone it is historic if not only for being the place that all families gathered when the Titanic sank, being the company headquarters.
We warned of this years ago.
Call This Regeneration, or maybe a tale of two cities.

It seems there is money to trash the world heritage site, but none to maintain our historic buildings.
