[edit] Demolition on Booth Street?

Apologies if this is mentioned elsewhere, the lack of a search function on this message board is not one of its better qualities...

I was wondering if anyone knew anything about what will be replacing the building on [edit] Booth Street that currently is surrounded by fences and demolition signs?

I think you must mean Cooper Street/Booth St. As Mez says York St is behind the Plaza - but there are rumblings about a Bruntwood new build in that area I think?

Xerox House, Cheshire House and something else are coming down to be replaced with this. Belvedere House from Wilson Bowden

Belvedere | Booth Street | Height TBC | 8 Floors

Huge apologies if this is covered by another thread. I passed this today and took a very shaky picture, and thought it might be worth including as a thread, as I haven't been able to find an existing thread for it. If you're trying to place it, it's the one right next door to Chancery Place (of which I took an even shakier picture that I'm too ashamed to post).

There's some info on the Wilson Bowden Developments site:

So, Belvedere House/Place/whatever: Fussy, badly dated even before it's been built, seriously shown up by being so close to Chancery Place. Or is that just me?

Just wait for the fenestration to be installed. It will look a lot better.

But it isn't anywhere near as good as its neighbour, Chancery Place.

I like it myself. It does look slightly dated and a bit fussy, but at least it's not a victim of the current fashion of asymmetric windows á la Simpson.
