The Hatton Garden heist site could become a museum after Tottenham Hotspur vice-president David Pearl takes on a long lease at the 88=90 Hatton Garden despoit.

Property millionaire David Pearl said he was looking at several options after taking on a long lease at the location where £14m of goods was stolen during the Easter weekend.

Pearl has been reported saying that the site could become a museum around the incident, commemorating one of London’s largest raids.


Other reported ideas include the site being revamped to have high-security and new deposits or the new vault owner letting out the site to a jewellery shop.

The site was put on the market in October by liquidators Streets SPW with a £200,000 guide price, although the agreed price has not been disclosed.

The previous leasehold owner, Hatton Garden Safe Deposit Ltd, shut down in the wake of the heist.
