SOMETHING will happen here, and let's face it - it wil only be tinkering with the design - lower/raising levels, changing uses, facades etc. I can't imagine too much will change to be honest.

Of course Fat Prezza might stick his oar in, but I think this satisfies ODPM requirements.

Btw - I wonder whether the cultural use could be a museum

Is that a knowing wink Bio, or just a common-sense-induced-suggestion wink?
Either way it's a bloomin good idea, we could do with a National ... Museum in the centre of Brum. Especially when we've got so much hertiage on which to found one.

It's a wink Steve

It would have to house something that Brum is famous for and/or popular with the public. Let's hope it isn't a button museum or something

But can you imagine life without buttons?

It'd be a lot colder for a start off!

as i said, a museum is well needed in birm,ingham...we have way to few of them.....

im not saying that MG wont get built. i mean this is the corner stone of the councils plan to regenerate the city...has been talked about for years so its obvious something will get built. i just feel the need t tell certain memeber (no names.....ok BC) that this aint hapening 2moro

I love the fact that we (might) be getting a 110m here - it will be our second tallest inhabited if it is finished before BST, AC etc! I have been enthusiastic!

Btw - BWP is lovely

Oh yeah, it's 30m taller than Alpha Tower!

If you take an axis from the cathedral to Moor St then the new tower will appear about the same height as the Rotunda. Standing outside M&S on the High Street is going to look very slick.

All glass like the Rotunda would be good
