Right so heard a lot about this site from many members of 28DL and a few off of it... It sounded amazing so i decided i needed to check it out for myself.. The inside of the building is really bare and empty and has some very steep drops from where the lifts used to be... the heart of this building is the roof which has some amazing views from it.
History:

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.
