No problems Sim. Here we go, with further apologies for the incorrect date stamp. For the record, all shots were taken on Friday 9th March, between 10 and 11am.

Hopfully cladding it with Mirrored effect so it matches the rest of the building and not just a brick wall...

Fingers crossed this will go up dead quickly - I hate the diversion caused by the roundabout closure! It affects me every time I have to drive into the office.

Well what see being built so far is the underground car park. With that built, a flat platform should be built and the foundations for the building would be laid and ready just like Masshouse Tower 2

That's the road redevolpment, nothing directly to do with the Snow Hill Building, they were working on the roads, but not these buildings the last time I was there on a Sunday, so I think they'll get a move on with it.

That's good - I had assumed it was all interrelated and was part of some kind of preparatory foundational work.

Snow Hill Residential Towers

Hi Everyone,

I'm new to these forums. I love the photos of Snow Hill. I thought this article may be of interest...

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/w...ds/6431887.stm

Towers will look fantastic - will be a great asset to Birmingham skyline!!!

This is all looking pretty splendid! Bring it on, I say!

I just wish something can be done about that horrible brown thing behind it all that is supposed to be the station - that is going to deaden the impact of all this when seen from the other side..

I am constantly amazed by the different views of St Chad's - and the new views that will be opened up by this development get me really excited. It's a hidden gem which needs to be able to breathe a bit!
