yes...enjoyed it....B'Ham is overlooked , and it shouldnt be.
Only there for 1 evening but managed to get up on top of 4 sites.
Unfinished business there for sure....I'd like to do some more , but they will require a bit more time and planning.

i think the view from St. Andrews is the best view of our city. i was there in awe after we beat Palace 1-0 (in the 94th minute!!!) and then i just welled up with pride seeing that magnificent skyline just outside the stadium

i don't think it's a lighting scheme i thinl instead of leaving every floor lit up they've only left the top floor lights on and those in the stairwell. I don't think I've seen this lit up red as the render suggested it would be.

Hyatt for me is the standard-bearer for all tall buildings in Birmingham. i'm not too optimistic that it'll be outdone anytime soon
