Pure madness how quick these student halls are being thrown up. Kind of sad I never bought up a crap bit of awkwardly sized land near the ring road a few years ago. Could have made a few bob.

Back in the 1990s there was an old ruin next to Colin Campbell. I always wondered if it was the remains of a blitzed building.

I wonder what Donald Gibson would think about the skyline these days. He wrote about how the old city was disjointed with different heights and styles and his plans were for a city with more uniform heights and styles. That was mainly between 1 and 3 floors.

These new projects have heights going from 2 to 22 or 2 to 16 floors in a few places!

I believe this is the replacement for the Boys Club that is being built first.

Are they starting with new club building? I seem to recall the tower is behind it.

I'm sure I saw a tower crane base on site as I drove past this morning.

It's safe to say that by the time you read this Coventry will have 11 tower cranes.

I don't think I appreciated just how prominent this would be at the top of London Rd.
