While on the train I grabbed these.

I think the first lot are where the drive in cinema was for one night and the other one is where I think used to be a milk processing plant right next to some 3 storey flats. Both on the Vauxhall road though I think. Taken with mobile on moving train so excuse the quality






And here is the other place

Yep, the top one is Curzon Gate alongside the Digbeth Branch Canal. It is student and private dwellings. There will be an 11 storey tower and a 12 storey tower there. It is on the former Castle Cement site.

Unsure what the second one is. There has been some confusion over that.

We have no images for both. It seems the council do not have any either. However, it has been given planning.

^^Um, here's Curzon Gate. I think this is the most up-to-date image we got, not too sure.

^^I don't think it is. Sim said something about it being a vision. But it could be possible. I haven't looked for a planning app. yet.

Says something about a new head office for West Midlands Fire service on the hoardings on Vauxhall road. Went past the other day.

Then surely its the replacement for the current central fire station?

Aah then it probably is, though I'm still unsure about the safety village aspect of it.

No the Fire Control Centre is in wolves, at the Science Park, Its where all the phone calls will go basically, and I believe is one of the most hi-tech buildings of it sort in the country. Nuclear proof!
