that rent is e2,400 a month, significantly more than the ones in the rest of the development. Students getting screwed by landlords, it could never happen :)

Well that's a bit clearer - if they pay that much they deserve to be screwed over

I doubt anyone will pay that much to be honest, there's some sort of scam going on here.
Maybe it's to get back at those who objected to the Hotel plan?

Could something like what MVRDV did on that silo in Copenhagen be applied to the Bolands Mill structure? Dotting cantilevered glass box embellishments to the outside of the building and maintaining the impressive mass of the concrete structure

Here's the Wilkinson Eyre one (stupid Flash websites - so beloved of architecture firms - that don't allow linking):

PTB posted images of the Copenhagen project on the previous page.

Cheers ctesiphon. How do you get around the Flash to copy and paste?

um... so are the apartments rented out in the gasometer or in the general development?

if it's the gasometer - LOL! hate to be someone who purchased in one of the more mundane buildings to have students looking down on them ;)

Good question. AFAIK the apartments are in the gasometer only, and I heard that anyone who had a deposit down was being refunded. I dread to think of a Sat night/Sunday morning with various revellers shouting down at various parties on internal balconies!
Maybe it's just a plot to get the students to frighten those with signed contracts into accepting a refund??:eek:

Print screen, copy image into e.g. Paint, trim to remove traces of my identity (;)), save to image website (Photobucket, ImageShack, Flickr, etc.) and link to that image. Not exactly user-friendly, but Flash websites bring out the stubborn git in me. :D

They were refunded years ago. Carroll owns all of the apartments in the gasometer itself

This is such a Trojan Horse to get people to drop objections to the hotel.

I.e. give us our hotel or we give you students
