There are lots of updates on their Facebook page, and links to sign up to a newsletter, so maybe it’s just not ready yet.

Call me old fashioned but I'm not ready to start buying apartments off Facebook.

I guess this construction has done everything in its own good time so I'm sure people will eventually be allowed to live there.

Most of the lighting scheme is turned on now, the base of the building looks fantastic.

The pavers look like granite, so there shouldn't be problem a with gum sticking

I know that a lot of you were disappointed we weren't getting the previous proposal but a lot of the fear that people had about this being built has turned out to be unjustified in my opinion. It's a decent addition to the skyline.

Still confused with this one, the night-shot looks like some of the apartments are occupied but in reality the site is still secured off and contractors still beavering away!!!

Check out page 80 - fig 1 & 2 and you can see a very similar tower envisioned by John Madin for his never to be fully fulfilled ‘Civic Centre’ proposal.

Ha! Who knew Madin was responsible for The Florin over at Springhill!

In a roundabout way, seeing how it turned into a *total* shithouse of a pub, it was an exemplar of his work.

some interesting stuff in there - looks like a tower was proposed opposite the Town Hall - I’m assuming where the old post office building still stands - so glad that didn’t happen!

The proposed Civic Centre was a real hotch potch / what we have now is so much better.

I do miss his Post & Mail Tower though.

So glad the link bridge to Baskerville House never came to fruition.
