Ice Cream Cones

The top of Montague Road is home to the Parmalat factory (it gets called "The Ice Cream Factory"). If you stand on William Jolly Bridge you get a great view of all these pipes and cylinders and cones and stuff. It's on PRIME land with river frontage right in the middle of town. Perfect for a nice 10-storey block of unaffordable luxury apartments and maybe another coffee shop.

Kind of takes away the romance of ice-cream doesn't it

Quite a nice photo. For some reason though, I get the feeling you are not happy with this "ice cream" place.

Ah Jacob my sarcasm is lost on you! I really like it - but there is a sense of impending closure as the neighbourhood is more and more gentrified. Who can afford $1.5m dollars for a flat??? It's crazy. Maybe with the onset of the recession we might be spared all the opulence. If they have to make it residential, at least make it affordable...get some families back in the city, that's what I say!

OK it's safe to look I've come down off my soap box...
