    This place has been done time and time again but here's the history:

    A corn warehouse built in 1857 for the Great Northern Railway Company. It was designed by Nottingham Architect T C Hine in conjunction with the adjacent main station building on London Road (the Low Level Station). The design incorporated a major technological achievement - the principal roof spanned a huge void with only iron suspension rods supporting the first floor, this provided the maximum possible roof space for grain the first floor has iron suspension rods from the wooden roof, supporting the floor without obstructing the space. Hine used a similar system in the Adams Building, Stoney Street.

    The grade: II listed the building was sold by Nottingham City Council to the present owner with a contractual obligation to carry out a restoration scheme. However, no repairs were carried out only suspected arson attempts. In 2000, the owner was refused LBC to demolish the building. in 1998 a lot of the original internal design was damaged in a major fire which caused extensive damage; the roof collapsed and cast iron columns and wooden sack hoists were removed in the "clear-up" process. One area of the warehouse is now just an empty shell held up by an extensive scaffold that resembles monkey bars. The bodies of two women were found in the building in 2005, which led to two men being jailed for murder in 2006, one said he wanted to become the city's first serial killer. The warehouse is now home to skag heads and the homeless but it falls within the East Side Masterplan for the regeneration of the whole area, watch this space...
