You are right,jfs.Decent stuff needs to be constructed pronto over that side.

I walked passed there today - the whole area letís the city centre down - itís a dump & the sooner itís demolished & replaced the better.

Unfortunately not a Birmingham thing, it's endemic all around the country. Manchester Evening News & Liverpool Echo are just as worse, cluttered with the same sort of twonks.

Still, I've seen worse comments. Anyone remember when Bloc Hotel burst onto the scene. Most of the comments were from bored middle-aged women banging on about why we're not building more schools & why is the council prioritising on building a hotel instead of running our hospitals!! Brummyboy soon put them in their place - "You bunch of Daily Mail reading ****" or something along those lines

The thing that gets to me is when people complain about plans for residential developments with the whole 'why aren't they building more houses?' crap.

What goes through these peoples minds?

Must admit the timescale for this is absolutely daunting... almost 20 years from now to completion!! 12 years after the planned arrival of HS2!! Is'nt Smithfield, a much bigger scheme looking at about 10 years, Paradise in total will be about 10 years by completion.
Can't wait to see what's planned, but with that timescale, build in economic downturns and the like, and the grand vision we'll see, will probably be watered down significantly and be disappointing...and yes ComPurch visitors arriving on HS2 will alight to a building site for over a decade.

There is an older permission that has now expired i believe. As such, they need to apply again. The original post refers to the application that has expired i would have thought.

Itís a shame the wrecking ball isnít taking out Martineau Place and that other hideous 60s block (forgotten what itís called) with Union Passage.

A clean sweep up to new street!

Yes an application has gone in a few days ago, but not the one we're waiting for. It's an application by Hammerson to carry out
Quote:
'Environmental Impact Assessment scoping report for proposed development of up to 255,000 sqm of mixed use floorspace including office, hotel, retail and entertainment and leisure and up to 1,300 residential units with associated infrastructure works.
The supporting statement prepared by Turley reads that an outline planning application with reserved matters will follow in the summer.

The app Number is 2019/03575/PA

Would be nice to see city arcade given a bit more prominence

This is a game changer for central brum linking the traditional centre to the areas around HS2.

Look forward to planning app in Summer , hopefully demo can get underway within 12 months...

The walk from HS2 to Five Ways via Martineau, St Phillips, Victoria Square, Centenary Square and Brindleyplace will be something special. By my reckoning there should be at least eight 100m+ towers to admire along that route.
