Is nineteen-nineties-victorian-pastiche a character you particularly feel is worth preserving?
Not a chance , ha, but this one is hardly an improvement xD
This is an interesting render
It all looks a bit "Tracy Island"....
You'd think, with all the money that's going to be spent on this project. They would have got rid of that God awful canopy.
One would imagine that they might make some effort to reduce the 'perching potential' on the top of that, or it'll turn into a sort of guano cooling tower.
Why is this needed anyway ? I can only assume this is going opposite Sainsbury's / next to Iceland's loading area, seems a tad pointless.
I wonder if they will switch those "couple" of workers who have building that steel framed place for the last few years at the lights just prior to the Leisure place/Asda ?
One isn't any better than the other really and the current site is hardly a listed building.
So long as it brings a dead building back into use then I al all for it.
Last few years??
So do we know what’s happening with Home Bargains and Iceland? Neither are terribly well placed so they may enjoy an opportunity to relocate...
Home bargains is staying as far as I know, they're building around it, and tbh, with the increased footfall to the area, it'll probably be rubbing it's hands with glee, so long as the landlord doesn't take the opportunity to increase rent !!
One of the news reports made it sound like they were all the same landlord. A home bargain next to a hotel is a massive plus for me when I'm traveling with work.
Spot on mark, can't see anything negative in this. I doubt it will bare much resemblance to the pictures, and that part of town has little architectural merit in my opinion imho. More visitors, more shoppers in a part of 'ford which is dying (all ready dead?). I may be naive, but only reasently positve thing in that part of town has been Slater's & Howgarth's, which have of course built on the Butler's Bell & to a lesser degree, Nero's. Don't think Ibis cater or have a bar, so these current places will be rubbing their hands. Still want to sell BB Spoons?
Ibis Styles hotels usually have a nice little bar but too small to make an impact, will be a definite plus for Slater's especially during the quiet weekday evenings.
They're not knocking the building down, just changing the inside...
