04:46 pm: swiss centre demolition has properly started. they've got rid of the cooling tower on the lower roof (the building is a three storey or so long building, with a skyscraper poking out of part of it), in bits, with their giant crane. they also used their giant crane to move a JCB onto the roof, which was today hacking at concrete. maybe the JCB will cut a big circle in the concrete and then fall inside the building?

yet they still sell tickets out of it.

Though possibly the /.../ in the middle means you have copied an abbreviated link that doesn't work

Yes, it will be quite a bit lower. Not found a render of it.

Yes. It all has scaffolding over it. Can't see what they're doing up there, though.

Hopefully they will tune it during the downtime. (and even more hopefully we will have moved office by then).

I treasure the thought that the kitsch clanging clock will be upgraded to feature shovel-wielding irishmen and Poles with jackhammers in place of the Julie Andrews lookalike figurines.

So the net realisation for the cinema would have been £135,047,317 MILLION?
Some mistake surely?
