This has all but fallen through now.

No tower - instead they're just going to invest in converting the shop units into restaurants, plus bowling alley in the basement (former Index). Essentially it will become a Red Dragon Centre for the city centre.

Is it possible that the 30 storey tower proposal story was a wind up? It doesn't half seem a bit impractical.

That's essentially what was planned minus the tower, is a bit uninspiring though. Is there still a plan to put an entrance opposite Queen St station? The centre's main issue is a lack of thoroughfare.

The shopping center needs to be knocked down and started again, i just cant see much of a return on any development that would increase its offering and would only improve the layout. It definitely needs to address the thoroughfare between it and Queen street station and the dead frontages facing most of its surroundings.

The centre is in desperate need of a makeover. It's too bland
