Me too. The Dixons XL store in the Bullring is going (if it hasn't already) so it could go there maybe? It might be more profitable to carve it into smaller stores.

The Academy have got concerts scheduled for a while yet so that building won't be going just yet...

Yes Jam35, agree with you certainly about the old Opera house, and also your comments re. McD's. That route of Curzon street through to High street was an opportunity to reinstate a very useful connection from the city to the new Eastside. I also share your concerns re. Corporation street, though generally have found the original concept of MG very exciting.

That masterplan is only a rough guide, there going to be a lot of changes before anything gets built, something of this size means there will be several alterations and rethinks along the way.

I just hope they make a much better effort than parts of Martineu place which are quite frankly awful.

I'm thinking that it carries on as an access road underneath the development possibly linking up with the Albert St access.. that would be logical.. similar to the road under the Bullring, otherwise it could be stand alone access to the north end of the development but not linking through.

I think this is the sort of detail that would only be at the proposed state so far and so would be subject to change until full planning permision is given.

Maybe the road that feeds Albert St continues under the development? I suspect this road & Dale End are going to be the entrances to a new underground car park....

Yes it does tend to do that in the northern hemisphere.

Dale end access is north east more than north i've decided..

The BCC site has a planning (issues) report which gives some comments on the scheme. One snippet is that the proposed tower is only 3.0m below the BHX height limit. An interesting read:
