I think people have to accept that we aren't getting a screen on top here, it's been nearly a decade.

You may be right, but when the 3 New Street screens are up and running, it might give planners a little nudge to get one sorted for the top of the Rotunda.

You'd think, but remember there are 2 LED screens at the base of Rotunda, on the Waterstones building, and the corner on top of Big Top.. So I don't think we'll be seeing anything on Rotunda soon. I think that would have been enough to make a move.

Is there actually a valid reason for not have a screen up there, like is it because it's a listed building? Or the effect on surrounding areas?

The top of 103 CR is going to look ace! I love the 11 Brindleyplace crown.

If it give the planners a nudge we still won't get a screen as it is not the planners preventing the screen.

The reason we don't have a screen up there is nothing to do with planning. There could be a screen up there if someone wanted to pay for it. As i have said, no one wanted to pay for it in the first place, it was mostly funded by Advantage West Midlands hence the planning condition on the amount of advertising to community use on the first permission.

Although being a listed building would be considered, they already had a permission for the screen. They just didn't complete it.

There must be so little storage space in the tiny apartments that people are storing bits and pieces behind their curtains making it look rather messy looking from the outside in...

That's always been to my annoyance. Mirrored glass would've been much better on this.

I've warmed to it, slightly. I quite liked the reno, at least it wasn't a dramatic change like at 5 Ways.

Can you see it from ground level also?

Can't find any info online about it.


Most people are still posing for photos with the original 2003 bull below it!

I think it first appeared when the Rotunda was redeveloped, there were also some on top of the Fort Dunlop building. (That was redeveloped by the same company as the Rotunda)

I'm amazed one of the commercial TV companies like ITV or Channel 4 haven't sponsored a screen at the top of the Rotunda to advertise programmes and as a general advertising screen.

Someone said in another thread that the Bullring banner has gone.

Saw this view from the bus stop on Albert Street with Travelodge to the left.

Raining, then I think it was snowing (before I got on the bus).
