although it seem the firm is still trading. I hope they survive.

Arca, which specialised in residential work, was forced to declare insolvency in June and then restructure with the loss of six staff after developer BS Construction, a major client, went into administration. The loss scuppered its £180 million Greengate towers scheme in Salford and forced the directors to relaunch the business using their own finances.

I believe they laid off their staff and they (i think there are two of them) are going alone.

Is it at all likely that in two or three years the plans will get bought/taken over by another more professional company and be taken forward once the credit crisis wares off? Or is it more likely that the site will go right back to the drawing board and push everything back ANOTHER 2 or 3 years of planning?

My understanding is that Salford would require a completely new scheme to be submitted so i would say the latter more than the former.

Great :S Well at least we could end up with a better scheme at the end of it. Canopus although tall was never anything eye watering. Maybe Ask will end up taking over the site. Would be a lot happier with them in charge!

Technically my comment was spot on. They had 'started' 'fact' and 'possible' implys maybe. Not it will go up. 1:0 to me.

No point when a better site exists on Pomona Island. However its 99% likely the HS2 will be based next/adjoining to Piccadilly station.
