Those curved concrete corners are crying out for some Piccadilly Circus style wraparound LED boards:

As for the BBC, let's wait and see it when it's finished.


Isn't it going to get a bit wider though, with the new HMRC building being set back a bit?


Hopefully it will be because a dual carriageway or at least an S4 lane road will need to be put in, don't want a lack of width in a place that high of density. Could be a disaster in the future


i read that wood street will be one lane either way, so the road will be narrow, guess thats why they are putting in that square in front of HMRC.

Thats an excellent idea about the live BBC news. Would make the city feel much bigger as well - I know it sounds stupid - but cant think of any other city that does this outside of London. Would give quite a metropolitan feel.

Are you a member of Plaid? If so I’m surprised that you’d want a live stream from the BBC dominating our capital city!
