Are you confusing people not liking it with people wondering why you keep telling them about it?

There's plenty of people with plenty of money who don't want to talk about it, for plenty of reasons.....

Keith, but you do come across as a bit up yourself when talking about money. I don't think anyone here knows how much I earn or what I do for a living, whether I drive and if so what, how much I owe on my mortgage and where I buy my clothes and groceries. As Larven said, why do you need to boast about it on an anonymous forum?

That said, though I rarely, if ever, agree with your opinions, I like to hear them. The internet is about communication and bringing people you may not meet otherwise closer to you. Debate is about hearing the opinions of people who disagree with you. It's good to get another point of view of many issues in the city, and I suppose knowing a little of where you come from helps us to formulate reasoning behind those opinions.

I really don't care how much you earn, what car you drive or how much it costs. Nobody else here does apart from you it seems. Your belittling comments like my car cost 'many multiples of the average wage' rub against the grain sometimes and wouldn't go down well in polite company. If you think that the reason these kind of comments aren't generally recieved too kindly is down to jealousy then you couldn't be more wrong.

I'm sure it won't but I do find it quite amusing now!

That said, I am leaving this thread alone since it's been dragged way off course by this discussion.

Back to car parks...

Anyone know where I can park my private helicopter? Cars are just too blasé for me.

Try Weston Park, they usually have space.

I've owned cheap cars and not so cheap cars. For me it is about respecting your possessions whether they're cars or otherwise, and you don't have to be wealthy to have that mentality. I was as protective of my £450 uni car as I am of my current one.

SheffCity, maybe read the T's & C's of your contract as you may be able to back out of the deal if they've lowered their security coverage without telling you.

Its suggested that a car is an extension of one's personality. For the moral wellbeing of everyone reading this, SheffCity could you please say what type of car it is you drive so that the less smug and aloof amongst us know not to consider buying one.

Cheers

It really looks big from this angle:

The whatsitcalled (baton? latts?) is on a lot of the front now, so I expect the panels/cladding will go up in the next week or two.

Look at that huge expanse of land. Some cities would kill for a plot that huge.

The panels are on the back of this car park now, and they look pretty good, all things considered. It wouldn't be too bad if it came out looking like that all over. I'll see if I can take a photo some time.

It's about .4 hectare. But considering most of the land between Rockingham and Bailey Streets is low-grade industrial units (not all though, there's one or two nice buildings mixed in) we've really got a huge chunk of the city center to play with there. I would like to see them carve a walk/lane perpendicular to the streets, opening it up into six blocks, and zone it mostly residential. With it's location it could be a great place...but hey, fantasy and all that.

The land in front would be ideal for a new square. With residential flats (nearest point in the picture).

Wish the council would sort that road out though.
