Just heard Watkin Jones Group are planning to build a 30 storey, 825 unit build-to-rent and co-living development at Portcullis House (just at Charing Cross station, ) - gonna be a huge building if it goes ahead - these co-living guidelines sounds interesting, like a modern day commune.

They're going in my playlist alongside Rammstein - Du Hast - anybody got any suggestions of anything similar?
