I might need to ask you to find out but im sure Centre City tower had to have a small theatre or cinema when it was built to replace one that was lost. Would that be related?Because I'm bored, tired and very ill right now, I'm going to do the same to you lot and bore you with unnecessary local history. :sleepy:
Scala House stands on the site of Scala Cinema. It was opened on 4 March 1914 and in its earlier days was famous for its 12-piece orchestra. On 4 June 1960, the 859-seat cinema closed and was demolished to make way for the new ring road. A new Scala Cinema was built on the same site.
What a waste of peoples emotions then announcing the £556m pound propoposed plan. We all get excited and in all honesty wont hear anything for some time, and probably until the Mail has an attempt at journalism to report the story.BT Tower cant stay forever especially with the amount of highrises going up in close proximity! think it will be a few years yet until anything is proposed.
They're a bit slow with news, the planning app went in at least two months ago as I posted it on an earlier thread.Nurton Developments has submitted futuristic plans for the final phase of a £25m redevelopment scheme within the core business area of Birmingham city centre.
The company purchased Priory & Cannon House – which have a combined floorplate of approx 45,000 sq ft – in 2004, and earlier this year launched phase 1 of the redevelopment programme with a £2.5m makeover of Cannon House.
Now, architects are initiating design proposals for phase II of redevelopment, to transform Priory House. Proposed plans for the property will include futuristic glazed from projecting from the new facade, 40,000 sq ft of penthouse office accommodation, and improved basement parking.
Not really. When you look at what TV channels and producers doing to attract audiences.This is so strange, after Central and Pebble Mill closed, the media now want studio space again:nuts:
