There's a section for demolished buildings that it could be moved to in the near future!

Just not sure about the numbering when there is equal signs for towers with the same height.


103 Colmore Row would be no 1 on the demolished list https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...ham#Demolished

I've heard Vinci have been awarded a £40m student development in Brum - Unsure which one but I can only really identify Bagot Street Phase 2.

Are we having a construction thread for the Bromsgrove Street resi site? - Should be a filler building of good quality.

Noticed a scaffold wrap going up around Queensgate House next to the Mailbox. Do we know why?

That's the one. I don't doubt that it is in use, but why have it so it can be seen so clearly? It's an eyesore.

Tbf they can hardly complain when they gave their support to this https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@52.48...8i6656!6m1!1e1

With that in mind, Birmingham is really holding it's own, and that graph demonstrates how important Birmingham's convention and exhibition industry really is.

I've moved Chamberlain Hall up into the main list and have uploaded one of my photos to the commons. Also added more co-ords.
