RIP Shalimar

I am also sad to see the large factory being demolished. That would have been great as American style open plan apartments.

Thanks for the detailed post Oldbury.It's a shame to see the factory go,but I'm enjoying those new builds;you could be somewhere in Holland .That part of the High Street was getting desperate.I hope the replacement for the corner cheers the street a little.

I too like the new builds. That's a lot of history lost though. I can't tell from the photos, are they building back the shop fronts?

On the Tesco webcam the factory building (Salters) can be seen way to the right of the view, I did say a week or so back the Salter Building was coming down. I'm sure I did read, when built, it was the tallest building in West Bromwich.

Here's a bit of it's history

I think the whole project won't look right until it's finished. To me what they have built looks strange within it's current surroundings.

HDR Is ok on the right photo but it can be overbaked.

I like how they seem to be putting a shed in each garden with the view about maybe little storage inside the houses, although I think I would have made them in a non pilfer concrete bunker design with a combination lock with an optional pitbull.

I like HDR it gives everything an other worldly feel

Why is it taking so long to demolish the salter Building?

It seems it takes as long to knock something down as it does to build something.

My guess is because the site is fairly small and they are buildings homes on there so space is limited. They will be knocking down bit by bit and taking the rubble away before moving on to the next part.

I guess you are right, so maybe then they should have knocked it down before they started building.

I bet it's going to cause problems when the Shalimar & it surrounding building get knocked down from a traffic & pedestrian point of view
