    Hey all, it's been far too long. Visited with @Xan_Asmodi.

    Bounded by a Premier Inn, a warehouse and the A57M sits a relatively small patch of what can only be described as reyt grim. Originally envisaged as a 65 apartment complex with on-site amenities and underground parking, a split level concrete frame was erected in 2004 and development came to a standstill soon after. Planning permission was granted in 2008 to extend the frame upwards to create a 215 room hotel on the site, but no work was carried out and the planning permission lapsed in 2012. The site was then briefly used as a car park before the low rise portion of the frame was demolished in November 2015 following the most recent planning application being approved. The current aim is to build a 42 storey apartment complex on the site, but no further work took place in 2016.

    Cheers dude! Hoping to stick around a bit longer this time :rolleyes:

    Thanks man! Fairly recently upgraded to a 7Dmk1, still getting used to it and my Canon 10-18 hence some of the first shots I took (ones from the roof) are a bit out of focus.

    Nice shots from up there. Only place for a while to give me wobbly legs lol. Think due to lack of security and wet lol.
