It's been a while since my last report, but I've wanted to visit this site for a long
time and every opportunity that's popped up was missed for various reasons but I
finally got around to checking out this site.

The views are amazing and access is fairly simple, Props to the certain someone on
here who helped out, you know who you are :)

Anyway, some Info:

Zurich house in Portsmouth, one of the tallest office buildings on the south coast
of England has been earmarked for redevelopment.

The centrally located offices were formerly occupied by the Zurich insurance group but
have recently been sold off to developer McAleer and Rushe Group. As part of the deal
it also has an additional 0.42 hectares of development land tagged onto it that could see
the development of a building up to 100 metres tall with an additional hotel.

The original tower has been designed by the Gollins, Melvin and Ward Partnership who also
came up with Sheffield's listed and soon to be renovated Arts Tower.
