I still can't quite warm to it yet. The design is just so... unforgiving. For such a bold design I feel like it needs something to break it up slightly? Some gold fins similar to the new UoB Library or something. The low rise element seems the most poorly considered element of the development.

Also, if a developer has been appointed is that pretty much a guarantee that it will be built in its current form?

I really like it, with lighting it’s going to look very slick.

Black building is going to be very impressive for people driving on the a38.

Really need to put a roof over snow hill and build on the car park opposite snow hill as well. And then this area will amazing!


It be very similar to the Euston flyover when your driving into central

The car park was closed the past few nights with some sort of machine on site, No clue what it was and this hasn't been approved yet, but could be some sort of site survey?

Also that project Sefton posted looks mint, the reflection on the black cladding could look great with the passing cars on the flyover.

Yes three test drilling rigs were on site a few days ago when I drove past.

The large advertisement board on site has had scaffolding go up around it as if it’s ready to be dismantled

This should be due for a decision within the next two planning meetings.

Q3/Q4 start this year to be ready for Q3 in 2020 would be my guess, but it depends on so many things apart from just it getting through planning...tendering, contractor, funding, the level of urgency from the developer.

http://www.thebusinessdesk.com/westm...isted-approval

Some amendments have been made prior to submission for approval this coming Thursday. Doesn't sound too drastic, although I am still not taken by this offering.

Quote:
The plans have undergone preliminary scrutiny from Birmingham City Council and a number of amendments have been agreed ahead of the full application being submitted.

The initial talks have seen developers agree to angle the building so it faces onto Lancaster Circus, thereby giving it a ‘public’ face.

The overall massing of the scheme has also been significantly reduced, while the central core of the building has been reduced to accentuate the tower’s height.

The two towers which comprise each wing of the development are to be clad in different materials to help break up the massing and be more sympathetic to its surroundings.
