For the eagle eyed forumer, you'd notice another development proposal not part of this one. I suppose this message can be deleted/moved once the application arrives.

It has now been submitted by St. Paul's Associates - it includes the redevelopment of the Cantonese restaraunt. This is an indicative rendering until the app formally arrives.

I agree and this is most certainly my favourite part of the city ;-)
Third favourite for me! First always has to be Brindleyplace, immaculately kept urbanity which takes "mixed-use" to the next level, with the vibrancy and friendliness of Chinatown a close second.

Objectively though, the JQ is unbeatable - beautiful architecture, lovely green space and one of the most exciting independent communities in the Midlands :)

Good to see more empty space being filled too. Imagine removing all the on street parking around the square on the side of the road with buildings, widening the pavements and creating spill out areas for the bars and restaurants, stunning. (You can keep the on street parking on the side of the road closest the square, there's no pavement there anyway)

I like both of these developments. It’ll be a shame to lose Henry’s but still worth it.

It’ll be nice to see this corner of the square properly finished off. It did always feel like a building was missing.

Now been approved subj to a few conditions. Really excited for this one
What conditions were included for the apps approval? Since your post was a while ago I’m presuming this build is gathering pace.

I’m curious to know of any amendments made to the planning app and how the architecture practice has interpreted them.
