For those of you in London, today was your last opportunity to stop by the old Shoreditch Tube Station for a scheduled viewing: the whole thing is up for sale, listed at £180,000.

"Situated at the junction with Code Street and Pedley Street adjacent to Allen Gardens," the auctioneers explain, "[t]he property is within a popular residential area with its many trendy shops, bars and restaurants." For instance, "Brick Lane is within easy walking distance and Old Spitalfields Market is close by."

The single-floor building, pictured above, courtesy of the auctioneers, "comprises a ticket office, a lobby area, store rooms, plant rooms and a WC." Owning a former Tube station with an address on Code Street would be an amazing thing, indeed. BLDGBLOG would move its offices there in a heartbeat.
