Looks like there may be some movement on Latitude, when I came past on the bus this morning there was diggers and rubble crushers and other big machines on the siite.

Looks like the site they have cleared behind , the otherside of the funny narrow road will just be a surface car park as they have pulled down the buildings and filled the gaps in hard standing with tarmac..

Full attachments for C/03531/07/FUL are up, guessing the council got their scanner fixed or whatever caused that big delay

Looks like a suitably exciting gateway building into gay village.

They seem to be keeping the frontage of nice building with upside V for room (im sure there is a proper term to describe it?). Quite funky.

Now need to work on a few more bits of Bristol street, link into the corner of Bromsgrove and new developments there plus tesco app site of Bristol street and we get some exciting buildings and active frontages.

Bank of China is the building on the other corner which the bus is passing.

Went to the hippodrome tonight for a Welsh National Opera event (oh check me out)and had a look at the building earmarked for demolition. Sadly it's quite nice

shame, the group of buildings on essex street are quite charming, and almost lost from this part of town....I hope the council realise the benfit of the historic buildings on bristol street and asks the developers to at least include the corner building

sadly I think they will gladly allow demoltion of much of what's left on the eastern side for developments such as this

I like the location of the development, Bristol Street is visually very run down and this will create more density around what is effectively a motorway.

I would like to see the pub on the corner retained and maybe a new structure built behind / on top of it such as has been done in the Convention Quarter with offices or the Orion Building - but with a bit of class this time around! The retained frontage on Orion looks dreadful and frankly Orion looks like something out of the 1960s with a bit of render slapped on it.

Here few more plan diagrams for people

This one a disection across building to see what happens on floors (a la Sim Tower)


The ground for plan showing retail


The view along Essex Street from I-land to this development.



Essex Street certainly going to be built up with this, I-Land and Southside opposite.
Definite need for trees as in diagram in street.

Whats in that gap between the 2 developments at the moment? Surely they'd wanna expand a bit further into that?

Its got sub station access for Electric board.
It does look like a big hole.

Perhaps plant a tall growing tree.

I like the block but would like (and thought) the corner building saved too.

That said, they are fairly standard High St buildings.

Thanks for the images Foxy & feltip - most appreciated!

As i havent been around this part of the city centre for months, any movement on the lattitude development? I really want this part of the city together with the digbeth area to get loads of redevelopment so that it can flourish in years to come. These 2 areas have huge amounts of potential if it is done in the right way.

This looks nice but why must we lose perfectly ok buildings when there are umpteen empty plots that have been left like that since the Second World War fercrissakes!! crying out to be built on - like next to The Mailbox?
