I'm not being sarcastic, can you at least have a look at the last posts on the old one... everything is already explained there, and here. The old thread is still on the forum, the first post in this thread has a link to it...

http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=222427

...there are several reasons why there is a new thread: the old one got cluttered with chat; Merepark are now calling the site Piccadilly Tower; there are a great many posts in the other thread so a fresh one isn't such a bad idea.

No one said the project was dead, what gives you that idea?

Hopefully B4ammy'll post a nice bit of Cheddar on here later to confirm if the hotel is signed up.

wikipedia....

Just been browsing wikipedia and somebody has edited wikipedia claiming that this project has stalled. I prefer to believe b4mmy and others saying that the project is up and running again.

Will somebody change wikipedia?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inacity_Tower

In the same article it says construction is to begin in 2007 AND that there is no progress sceduled for the future!

Oh, and the name, Inacity tower? thats.. like... soooooooo last month!

I've sorted it out now. Article moved to Piccadilly Tower, Inacity Tower redirected to it and I've also removed the paragraph that was entirely based on rumour.

If my cheese-making skills are up to scratch, maybe more like October/Novemeber then?

I actually know quite a bit about this, but annoyingly (although not unusually) I can't say anything for professional reasons. I can say this though - this scheme will definitely go ahead. Just looking forward to seeing some finished cheese - preferably Lancashire
