Tony Bear: you've reminded me that I saw posters in Cannon Hill Park asking for people to get in touch to sort out something about the future of the Golden Lion - I've had it on my to-do list for ages and will now finally get round to it today. If you're interested the email address is [email protected].

And now, I'm sure there's a better thread somewhere around to hold these sorts of discussions - anyone got one?
I emailed but no reply, thanks for this anyway.

You never know what the planning officers and committee might demand to be changed in order to get approval.

I'd assume this will sail through with just the usual small amendments. Don't forget, it's just a press report. BAM starting demo is the main story regarding the rest of the development I think. Need something to take our eyes of phase 1 monstrosity. (carbuncle cup nomination no doubt)

We could hold a sweepstake on how many floors will be cut from the top by the time it comes out of planning.

I'll guess 12 out, leaving 18 in....

Ooooh what a good idea.... Ok.....
  • Firstly the developer will say there isn't enough parking for a 30 storey tower minus 5 stories.
  • City Council Planners will say this is too tall for a City Centre site minus 5 stories.
  • CAA will decide its in the flightpath of BHX and distracting to pilots minus 5 stories.
  • English Heritage will say its too overbearing on St Martins Church minus 5 stories.
  • George Osborne will notice its a tower not in his northern powerhouse minus 5 stories.
  • The "world famous" markets will say its shadow is too long in the mid day sun and casts a shadow over their fruit and veg, causing it to rot quicker minus 4 stories.

In conclusion, I forsee Beorma tower becoming a quaint, single storey bungalow.

lol, nice one Bureau.

You could have hit on something there; just restore the old music hall and get a gold star from English Heritage too....

As i walked past those horrid buildings on the corner opposite st martins church/Selfridges i noticed metal barriers around them. Could they be getting ready for demolition. I bloody hope so, the area will look much better when they have gone. This is a positive sign in my opinion.

It's been pretty quiet there since the hotel finished. And the Cold Store building hasn't opened yet (has it).

Doubt that the demolition will start until sometime in 2016.

I find it a little fishy how there isn't a dedicated website or anything for this development.

We don't even have detailed renders for our 64m holiday inn express so its not that fishy. At least with this we have detailed pictures.

BEORMA CHANGES ... SLIGHTLY
Beorma Quarter poised for go ahead but with fewer flats

Links: http://www.birminghampost.co.uk/busi...ahead-10546123
  • The long-awaited Beorma Quarter project in Birmingham city centre will have fewer apartments than originally planned but its landmark 30-storey tower is set to stay.

    Revised plans, designed by the Birmingham office of Broadway Malyan, have been lodged by Kuwaiti developer Salhia Investments which have seen the residential element reduced from 223 flats to 194.
