A public consultation for Regal Tower was held yesterday, info and picture courtesy of GI_Chris

It will have a skybar between the hotel and the serviced apartments at about 100m, and I think it had an observation deck in the crown.

It will take about a year before they can begin and another two years to construct.

They are apparantly in talks with top chefs for the restaurant and some high end boutique retailer for the retail and a spa and all that sort of good stuff for the hotel.

The big bite building will be refurbished as part of the scheme and big bite will be moved out!!
