I'd also like to structure your request just like everyone else instead of chopping it up.

I'm not sure what you mean. I thought we were meant to delete sections where there is no information? :shrug:

BTW, why are you not registered on the forum?

I could not log in when I originally posted as I was using the wrong username. I have found the correct one now.

All added, but are the last two request the same as the other Snow Hill proposals in the database?

No, there are 4 buildings in total, the two I've recently requested are the 2 square blocks...

I've noticed that 'Park Central Tower' has been added too. I'd like to draw this building but have no idea what it is. Do you know where the sources came from for this building?

Yes, I just added it along with a few other Birmingham proposals. It was at Skyscrapernews. I don't believe it's been fully designed, and the rendering of it, there, is more a conceptualization than anything else, so I'd hold off until this plan was more developed.

BTW, Curzon Gatway is said to be under construction, the 12-story portion, but I can't find any information on it either besides the floor count. Do you think you can find when it began construction, when it will be completed, and other useful information so that I could add it to the database, as well? Thanks.

Ah yes, I realise what Park Central Tower is now. I don't think it's going ahead any more, but we'll have wait and see.

As for Curzon Gate, I had no idea any of it was under construction. The only info I've managed to find is...

Grainger reveals £350m Birmingham Plans

Grainger Trust and Development Securities has revealed plans for a £350m 1.4m sq ft (130,063 sq m) mixed-use development on the 10-acre Curzon Park site in Birmingham.

A planning application for the scheme, which has an estimated construction cost of £12m, is due to be submitted shortly. Development Securities will project manage the planning, infrastructure and commercial phases with Grainger project managing the residential component.

DevSecs and Grainger hope that outline planning consent for Curzon Park should be obtained by summer 2007 and that construction will start on site in late 2007/early 2008. The overall development programme is expected to take up to eight years.

That's from November 2006

I've got some drawings to upload, but I can't login so I can't. :(
I've requested a new password, but have not received an email. I've also sent an email for general inquiries, but nothing. What should I do?

Also, there is a tall mast in Birmingham, is it worth requesting it to be added?

1) Unfortunatly knowing. I am in the same situation. I have made some illustrations, I can't upload, because it is not open to registrate yet, even asked million times to the editores and Dylan to have an account. You should do as me, wait ,wait and wait until they found us as useble here.:(

2) I think all structures more than some 30m should put here. So the Mast in Birmingham should be included. Do not hesitate on requesting it.:tup:
