Is it artistic license with the width of the front of the building? That's not pavement width is it.

Not sure I understand what you mean exactly but from what I think you are saying, the building glass sheets you can see on the left of the pic above is at the back of the pavement and the bit between the glass sheets and the doors is part of the site which will be opened up. So effectively, the pavement will increase in size but the extra area isn’t public owned.

Hope that makes some sense.

That overhang is awesome! Like a more dramatic version than the LoB one.

ignorant question time

i'm guessing the steel with the holes in serves no other purpose than to make it lighter and more cost efficient?

i suppose you could run services through these gaps too?

Spot on, filthy1980.

Saves weight in transportation, lifting and final design with no loss of strength. Cheaper too.

The 103 Colmore Row site says steelwork will take 9 months so just about 2.5 stories per month.

I love the overhang. It's a shame the entire street hasn't been created like this (impossible now I know). In Turin you can walk around loads of the city along covered pavements like this, and it's awesome. Credit to the Italian urban planners of yesteryear.

Good point about Turin. I was impressed with Turin and surprised. It's not one of Italy's most talked about cities (except for the Turin Shroud), but architecturally it's up there with the best in my opinion for a motor city.

Bologna's king of that. 26 miles of porticos in the city, including a two-mile, 666-arch route up to the Basilica di San Luca. Fantastic place.
