Couldn't find whether we had a thread on this but it could do with onw as there's a new planing app in
Someone recently posted a picture of the site. I believe that they demolished the tower down to the concrete base which is still a couple of stories tall.I know it's a daft question, but will they be using some or all of the original foundations, or have they been removed already?

That's exactly rightYeah just went past today, its basically the stilts-like bit with a slab on top and then loads of rubble on top of that. There might have been some negotiations which basically said that in order to build a similar height tower they would have to use some of the pre-existing structure maybe.
Serious question, what qualifies as a tower? How many floors high, before you can call a building a tower, or is it all in the eyes of the beholder?Unless we're getting a tower of equal or better merit than the original then this shouldn't be allowed imo. This looks like a generic development better suited to the city centre.
