A former noodle bar on Brixton Road will re-open as a branch of Foxtons on March 9.
The estate agent chain, often associated with more expensive properties and known for its hard-sell tactics, has written to Brixton homeowners this week offering to sell their home for zero commission as an introduction to the area.
The former Speedy Noodle, at 506-508 Brixton Road, closed for good in September. It enjoyed cult status in Brixton as a “love it or hate it” no-nonsense noodle bar. In November 2011 reader Vanessa G wrote a piece for Brixton Blog entitled In defence of Speedy Noodle and the Chinese eaterie even got a mention from Stockwell writer Will Self, who visited after a trip down to Brixton’s sewers in April last year.
The letter, received at Blog HQ from Foxtons today, said: “We require properties on out books in order to establish our business in the area.”
