No photos yet, but had a drive around the centre the other day:

The new Radisson SAS hotel on broad quay is starting to look pretty decent now most of the cladding is complete.

The paragon is now on level 2.

The CC car park is being clad.

Clerical medical now demolished.

Temple quay central is starting to emerge.

And most suprising of all (to me anyway), is that demolition of the reclamation centre etc behind the ind. museum has begun, and the whole area has been boarded up. I'm assuming this will be for the new wapping wharf development.

Driving through the area last night I noticed that the new Glassfields development seems to have stalled.

Does anyone know anything?

I heard London Asset Management (Developer) was looking for a pre-let for the main building before commencing construction and they haven't managed to get one yet. The building is supposed to be one of the biggest floorplates in the city, given the economic climate they might struggle to get find an occupier in the short term. Long term they should be fine or have to build speculatively before the planning permission expires.

There's an interview with Steve Lansdown, Chair of BCFC on the BBC website at the moment. The main interview is just to reassure fans that the manager (Gary Johnson) is going no-where despite not winning the playoff final on Saturday. However, right at the end, he gives a little snippet of info about the new stadium
http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/foot...ty/7419914.stm

Quote:
Lansdown also confirmed that plans to build a new stadium to replace Ashton Gate were still in the offing despite Saturday's play-off final defeat.

"It's not going to be there next year but it is all going to plan and it will progress.

"It should be finished at the end of January 2012 ready for the 2012-13 season."

Airbus Uk has unveiled its final plans for a new factory in Filton which will secure the future of aircraft manufacture in the Bristol area.

The first major building on the site of the former Rodney Works will contain 260,000 sq ft of floor space for Airbus passenger jets and the new A400M military transporter.Airbus has submitted plans for the layout of the building, opposite Filton College on the A38, for approval by South Gloucestershire Council.

The building will form part of an estate to be known as Airbus Technology Park.

The latest plans set out a 20-year vision for the estate, representing a major investment in the future of Airbus UK at Filton, in conjunction with its proposed development partner, the GKN engineering group.

The building will be used for the production of trailing edge components for the wings of the A350, and will also include areas for the new generation of composite material components.

As well as the A350, the building will be able to handle wing components for the A380, the world's biggest jumbo jet, and parts for the A400M.

A spokesman said: "The building has been designed as a flexible space to reflect the changing demands of the aircraft industry. The processes for construction of aircraft are subject to continual changes as products emerge and technologies develop."

The building will also have more than 16,000 sq ft of office space on the second and third floors.

Phase two of the technology park, further up Filton Hill, will include a major office campus for research and development, and the refurbishment of Pegasus House.

The old Rodney Works, built in 1936, have been demolished to provide a 12-acre site for the development.

Before the site was sold to Airbus UK by BAE, it had been planned to use the land for houses and leisure facilities - but this idea was scrapped when the plot was sold.

Ian Turner, spokesman for Airbus UK, said the multi-million pound development was the latest in the Power 8 partnership between Airbus and GKN.

He said: "It will not create new jobs but will consolidate the jobs that are already at Filton.

"It will move Filton into the field of composite materials which is tomorrow's engineering.

"Some ground work has already begun and work on the building will commence very shortly."

Bristol Rovers have had to delay their plans (again).

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/bristol/7428390.stm

It looks like they're be playing the whole of next season at the Memorial Ground again so it wont start until next summer at the earliest now.

At this rate, it looks like Bristol City will be getting their new stadium first

Is there any realistic chance the plans will get canceled for good or will other investors step in?

It's been a little quiet on here lately, so I thought I'd go out and take a few shots for those who've not been into the centre recently....

1) Firsty, progressing well is the new Radisson SAS on Broad Quay, the glass cladding now virtually complete, and looking good against the blue sky...




2) Over to Cabot Circus, and a shot of the new apartments forming the side of the new Quaker's Friars area.




3) The car park is progressing, with the main structure itself now almost finished. External cladding has started since this shot was taken.




4) House of Fraser side of the circus viewed from Newfoundland Rd...




5) Cabot Circus taken from the Horsefair, one of the new streets leading into the development can be seen to the left of the shot...




6) Back over to Cabot House, and demolision is now well underway. This shot was taken two weeks ago...




7) These shots were taken today, with more of the building now rubble. The adjoining Brandon St car park has now also been dug up. Notice the excavation of an old building that once existed on the site in the foreground...

Cheers for the update BS1 The Car park is going to be obscured by that new office building isnt it? its going to be a bit of squeeze by the looks of things.

The Old Bristol and West tower looks much better now (it looks more shiny ) however i still would have preferred it if it was a glass curtain or something of a similar nature.

Also am i the only one really excited about seeing what the Quakers friars area will look like? looking back its been years since people were able to go there (not that there was a reason too, but y'know.) the contrast from what i still have in my memory and what will be there in the Autumn is going to be huge.

Thanks Helium - yes, the new home of the Environment Agency will have approximately the same footprint as the current Cabot House, with the adjoining apartments sitting on the old car park site as well as Brandon Street itself which will be lost. As a very "green" person, I'm really pleased that the building is going to be so sustainable. They are certainly making a lot of effort on the current site and almost all of the existing material is being sorted, ground down and recycled. Some recent press coverage...

Quote:
Cabot House - opposite the Central Library - has been boarded up and forgotten since the early 1990s when owner Bristol City Council stopped using it.

The new 70,000 sq ft office building to replace Cabot House, which the Environment Agency will occupy, will include natural ventilation, rather than air conditioning, and electricity from sustainable sources.

This will make it one of the most environmentally friendly in Bristol and one of the greenest in the UK according to a rating system known as the Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method.

It will mean the Agency's two offices, in Westbury-on-Trym and Aztec West, will close by 2010, with all 1,000 staff transferring to the site in Deanery Road.

Adrian Slade, project director at Westmark, said: "We are delighted with the Environment Agency's decision. Cabot House will be one of the greenest buildings in the country and will set a new standard locally. This makes it the perfect fit for the Environment Agency."

Cabot House will also include a further 30,000 sq ft of offices, 80 apartments - a third of which will be affordable - and improvements to the existing Bristol City Council public car park on the site.

I am also now loving the new Radisson tower - though have been trying to think what the metal brackets are along the roofline, as they do not feature on any renders I've seen. Possibly for an illuminated Radisson Hotels sign, but would that not take away from the illusion of the building "dissolving into the sky"? I hope they don't just leave them.

And you're also not alone in your anticipation of Quakers Friars. I think it could well be the jewel in the whole CC development, with the high-end retail, more expensive restaurants including Raymond Blanc's brasserie and the open piazza....
