Wow, that's a shame, I had no idea they were going to put such a big building up - it looks ok I suppose but I've been getting used to seeing more of the sky lately

reminds me of a glass coffee table - would all that glass be non-reflective I wonder...if you live in R.Hill'd be blinded every time the sun shone on it!

A year has passed and still no building work! It looks like they are now strengthening the support towards the railway viaduct... is it subsiding one wonders....

I read somewhere that the developers were going to go ahead even if they have no tenants signed up, anybody know any different? Maybe we will get our double glazing to Rowland Hill House before the noisy building work finally starts? ;-)
