The NTI down the road should become well known. I was speaking to someone at Apple Computers and Apple want it to be very important, one of the reasons is it's link with the TIC to CISCO.
All sounds wonderful, if only I knew what this meant - I lost it after 'TIC' and 'NTI'...

Yes, and a big one.

I will be back at uni soon doing a short course on UNIX with Sun and CISCO. I'll ask what's going on then.

Probably more like "Silicon Canal Bison" in the local accent.

What a great idea for a sculpture and would go along with the bully "cattle" theme!

the initial sketches looks goo thougha nd all this ffice space will be great.....

The render that really struck me was a building to the rear of Millennium Point with a seemingly domed glass roof. I think it was called Exchange Square. I used to overlook this development but now I actually find this exciting and will breath some life back into the troubled Millennium Point.

You have Curzon park across the way with a dozen or so blocks rising to 75m aswell as the Pinnacle close by. A stepping formation of towers rising gradually "FURTHER" from the pinnacle I personally think would've looked magifcent. Im not complaining though. It looks and sounds brilliant.

This bit caught my attention aswell ...

Quote:
Towards the west of the site along Jennens Road, Storey heights and the scale of the blocks is greater in response to thier proximity of the city center scale. At corner sites and along jennens road, taller blocks will allow landmark buildings to be created.

These are 7storeys max. I saw the map which colour coded the heights and that part is where the tallest will be. Though my colourblindness may have affected what I saw and they maybe the "8+ storeys" colour.

Just thought I'd add that yes there will be 8+ storey buildings BUT the site they will occupy seems to be where the nti has just been built on and thats just 4/5 stories tall.
