I think you are confusing the 80's and 90's with the 50's, 60's & early 70's when far more damage was done!


I think we have crossed wires on this one - I was trying to say the 60s & 70s were the disastrous years, I agree that Brindleyplace is awesome.

This is the best thread to post questions about dormant proposals so as to save bumping threads as the latter raises hopes and then instantly crushes them with a Godzilla sized foot.

This thread needs to be made a sticky.

Still don't understand how Nikal are steaming though construction of Exchange Square 1 and are on the brink of submitting a planning app for the tallest residential tower in the region, but still haven't been able to start Lighthouse, although all 14 apartments sold, I wonder what happened to those people that brought off plan.

There should turn this is to a 3 floor food court, will have a lot of apartment in this area and you also have the student, this it would do pretty well.

We might actually see it happen for 2022 Commonwealth. I won't hold out though.

There's an amended planning application gone in this week for 7-12 Bartholomew Row, (2018/00230/PA).
Well I'm assuming its an amendment to previous consent, I'm ready for my bed, but to me it reads like its just about stabilising the existing building?

The current secondary school has been transferred to a new Academy company http://www.core-education.co.uk/our-schools/and renamed City Academy Birmingham http://city-birmingham.academy.
No mention of plans for a new primary school on the vacant site in Bath Row.

Interesting to see Lumina is now classed as a Historic project on the Sterling PV website, along with completed projects Colmore Plaza, 55 Colmore Row and 1 Printing House. I wonder if Lumina really is dead and buried, the website is still live, and it's quite a good website for a project that hasn't taken off for years. With Snowhill Three going up, this is the only plot that is left on Snowhill Queensway.

hopefully they go bigger with it, didn’t West Midlands police demand it wasn’t any taller than proposed as would block signals, they’ve since upgraded when they had the refurb so may not be an issue from memory

I wouldn't mind seeing the current design go up tbh, but taller would be great, would be just nice to hear something about why it hasn't started!

Whatever happened to most of the companies and gun ranges in the gun quarter - barely anything left, seems the name is no longer apt.

Can already hear the commentators during the commonwealth games calling Birmingham up on the gun quarter irony. There were over 500 firms, so crowded they moved out of Digbeth to around the Childrens hospital (lol), now almost all gone - or was the shameful history of supplying american confederates too embarrassing the government cancelled all contracts? well probably the a****holes of BCC planners in the 1960s

Anyone else feel like we're still in the Christmas period??

Projects like Monaco House demolition has stopped, Arden Gate clearance has stopped, One Chamberlain Square has stopped (Unavoidable).

I know we still have the likes of The Bank, Landsdowne, Snowhill Three etc making very good progress, but I feel like many projects haven't restarted since the Christmas break. Or is it just me?
