On friday we craned in the new RHS on the right hand side of the building and poured the new concrete foundation. We can now start to deconstruct the horrible mess of hanging bricks at the top of the building.
I went and had a look at the container mall in Cashel street today, humn, maybe it was me. Boring. A pity Paul Lonsdale from the central city Business association has not put his energy in to helping retailers in other areas. The sole focus on this area has been to the detriment of the rest of the city. It lacks heart in my view.
The walk into the square has been nicely “sanitized”, you get a better view of the mess if you look down high street at the St Asaph st fence, or Manchester st/st Asaph street.
Pity they did not let people see it before the “sanitisation”.
I looked at the Cathedral and felt nothing. Just another wrecked building. I must be getting hardened. Too many days looking at Lichfield/high street I think,
We are having thoughts about moving to a new building, thinking of single storey wooden sheds! This is something we may need to look at in the future. The insurance bills for the High St site are now horrific.
One of the issues that continue to puzzle me is the fact that the contractors are not working in the red zone over the weekends, idle diggers, no builders no trucks. How can a city recover from this inactivity?
