Yeah, it's great, I assume it's only a matter of time before a big tower crane arrives?

Feltip reported recently that the council are considering the Outline application for the site on the other side of the road, so we are seeing progress on several fronts for Masshouse

Even Masshouse starting up again. I've used the word elsewhere but i'll say it again. We are enjoying a proper boom in Brum. Is it at some sort of peak (i doubt it as most of these projects are just commencing construction) or is it the start of a new era in Brum?

Hope the rest of this scheme picks up soon too.

It could definitely do with a reclad. By the way, just thought I'd say that it's 'right' and not 'write' lol.

Well, when you think of all the stuff that will be starting next couple of years, I don't really think we have to worry about a relenting of the pace of construction. Off the top of my head, I can think of V Building, BST, Martineu Galleries, City Park Gate which seem pretty well set to go. Of course, this is assuming we don't have any major crises which would put a halt to anything not already underway. But barring that, I really think we're only going to be seeing more stuff going U/C.

Write as in to write with a pen or write off, to acknowledge loss of, or write up as in write up account of ...
Right as in the right answer, turn right, right wing ...

and sense is correct spelling, non sence
