    Not related directly to the above, but....

    SSC, Manchester.

    I'm also hearing an ASDA whisper again.

    Don't know how true and accurate.

    Trying to get some more info.

    A bit of imagination from our owners and their Architects could create something similar on the Etihad Campus.

    Superb!

    Not. A massive fan of the idea of turning them into apartments but those buildings look awesome.

    I wonder if you could make it into a smaller venue for concerts/exhibitions - another reason for people to come to the collar site basically.

    Could do something like the London Roundhouse?

    [QUOTE="jrb,

    The drum below is much more architecturally pleasing to the eye than the two we've inherited..the pic of the examples in berlin and dublin are also grander

    I have thought for a long time that the gas holders would be ideal to convert into multi storey car parks, allowing more of the existing car parks to be converted into better money generating destinations

    You would get really dizzy going in & coming out, if you were on the top floor.
