They were using that Giraffe platform to go up and down it.

Now that the hoardings have been down for two or three months, I can get shots of the McLaren Building from Moor Street Queensway, with the car park

This is the McLaren Building as seen in the Bruntwood brochure. I don't know if they are planning to recreate this, they have even raised the level of the car park covering the lower ground floor level.

They could have at least erased the demolished Aston Uni towers!

Does that mean that land will become a square, cus I don't see it being used for future Masshouse buildings any time soon.

How come they removed the hoardings two months back on Moor Street Queensway?

That image has been floating about for a while - long before the Aston Uni towers were demolished.

Bruntwood don't own the land in front of McLaren so they can't do anything with it. You can see the footprints of the planned buildings though on the darker shades of paving. It's just a bit of artistic license...

Its such a large development plot its hard to see what they could do with it. A large theatre or iconic museum would be my choice.

The building looks ok but don't you think that the amount is too much for refurb, What they gonna change by investing this much money.
