9th September 2011Most of the scaffolding has been removed to reveal the finished exterior. In particular, the new mosaic elevation on the Whitechapel road side now plays its role as an impressive backdrop to the mosque's golden dome.
The interior block work is almost complete. We now intend to pause the construction work, partly to allow more time for fundraising, but also to design the link that will connect Phase 2 at ground and first floor levels to the existing mosque and centre.
We expect work to recommence in the Spring of 2012, insha'Allah.
