Yep, thought the same. Proper hoardings up and everything. Several diggers busy at work for weeks now, why would they do this to store some a bit of steel and rebar?

Is this the fabulous BDP prelet block or are they advertising the other plots?

thanks Crush. Well that pretty much confirms action on the Sarah Tower site.

Anyone else noticed that the vile Rail House, in between the Eastgate site and Piccadilly Station is getting a new coat of grey paint. Sadly not for the chop any time soon, so it would seem.

Yeah I was dissapointed to see it half painted grey last week. Not the most offensive building, but the site is perfect for a nice big friend for Eastgate IMO.

Ta for the photos Crush, highriser.

Eider House has been touched up. Which is good because before it was a perfect copy (albeit in glass) of Brum's The Foyer (another ISA building).

Looks alright. Obviously can't tell much from there mind. Main changes seem to be the addition of a few angles and what I'm not sure, but looking at that billboard render, it appears it's now kind of horseshoe shaped. Which given the shape of the plot, strikes me as very odd. The building to the rear of that billboard render can't be the BDP HQ or Issa Quay, surely?

That render looks more than a redevelopement, are you sure it's not going to be knocked down and rebuilt? Nice looking building though

Not sure if you're joking or not VS?

It's two different developments.

'course - I should have taken more time reading it, instead of just looking at the pretty pictures. Always been a fault of mine, sometimes.

When they do the old shit up Farsight, the results can be spectacular IMO. And the best, most solid bits of our heritage need lauding (almost!)

How bland would Manchester be if all the original Victorian stuff was pulled down?

jrb and jongey: I like some of the original Victorian stuff. There's some beautiful, ornate, gorgeous buildings. But the above ain't one of them. It's a plain cheap brick box, the shed of its day.

Let's aim to keep the best of yesteryear, not all of it.

The assize courts were fantastic from what ive seem in pictures. Shame Hitler didnt like them.
Though I believe he wanted the Midland as a Nazi HQ. (Should have put that in useless statistics)
