Can we just get some clarification mainly because i dont actually know where the Warehouse Project is held?

If i am in the Store Street tunnel looking out of town there is a car park in the undercroft to my left and beyond that several arches (which are now empty).

I was under the impression the WP was in this car park to my left.

Is it not?

Anyway - beyond all that all the arches on the left of Store Street have been granted Licences because these will hopefully all converted into bars and restaraunts at the base of the tower. Inacity applied for a 'blanket' licence of the whole site a when the planning app went in.

In that case i believe (although i'm not certain) that Inacity now own that undercroft and will take poccession of it once construction starts even though it isnt actually below the construction site.
Somebody who knows better is welcome to correct me but that is how i understand it.

Inacity are proposing a large amount of parking and so they may want to join the new parking with the current. Also, the undercroft would act as a good base for the workmen i would imagine.

I doubt very much they will change it during construction. It wont be build ontop of, thats for sure.

They should do, it's a bit of a mess under there, especially with all the hobos who gather there in the evening to get fed by barnados
With the exception of me

A quick question guys (to those in the know)...

Is this being redesigned or is it a legal/contractual hold-up?

Could it be being made taller?

The people who know aren't saying Bio.(Understandable) Those that don't know like myself can only guess. Correct me if I'm wrong, but hasn't the project been sold/part sold to another developer?(Sure the info was posted a while back) If so, they're probably looking at the project cost/design/height again.(Guessing) Apparently there will be an announcement soon.

Thanks jrb. I would have thought they could give a little hint as to why it isn't announced yet.

If it is a new developer then it could well be a wholesale redesign. Does this site have PP or will it be a fresh submission?

At work I hear rumours of buildings in Mcr, but naturally given my geographical location, sometimes find them difficult to pinpoint

We can all just speculate, but I still think that logically, this will kick-off when there's a pre-let on the hotel............to be announced soon?

Bio. Previous Posts by Lachlan. Seems to be ITK like B4mmmy.

Posts: 93 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

I will happily take that bet - nothing like relieving a Mancophobic troll of his hard-earned. Need to agree the terms though, not having you wriggling out of this on the grounds of inconsequential design changes. It is quite possible that there will be some minor alterations to the design as a result of the change in control of the development which B4mmy alluded to earlier - but this scheme WILL go ahead.

Ah - thanks. So no major overhaul then.

Must be another one I am hearing about - probably Owen St.

If you've heard about a re-designed tower, it could well be Albany Asset's Crown Building?

What are you hearing Bio? Or can't you say? (good, bad or ugly?)

My line has just been cast and I'm now officially fishing.

It's not Crown. I can't really say (partially because I don't know a great deal, but partially because I know enough, and if someone else joins the dots I'l get into trouble ), but it's one of your tallest and I think it could be a redesign.

Anyhows, you'll be happy if I'm right

That will do for me mate. Always a pleasure to read your interesting snippets. Cheers.
