I forgot they were adding to the height. This will make quite a big impact and improvement to views of Brum from the Jewellery quarter and surrounds.

I think it's adding two floors.

Confirmed by reading the very first post of this thread.

There seems be a slight gullwing look to the new structure on top, I'm guessing that will be the blue thing on the render.

Given the dodgy night time render i think we will be quite surprised when the wraps come off this. Hopefully it will be a pleasant surprise.. what ever it ends up looking like it will look a hell of a lot better than it did.

I'm really looking forward to this and I love the extension top. Any renders of the add-on down by the canal?

So they've put scaffolding around the additional two floors. At least something's changed! Is it the netting or have they put on some cladding?

Very well spotted, hopefully this doesn't turn into another 'Orion'.

I know it was bad before, but a bad referb could be just as bad.

Sorry we tend not to break in. We find a way in like a open door.

We don't force nothing
