In the link, they mention this:

The plan would take 15 to 20 years to materialise and the first two years are expected to produce smaller projects like the creation of the sensory garden at the former Odeon cinema which has already been bought by regional regeneration agency Yorkshire Forward
And this is the Odeon at the moment





So, on the first picture, that is on the far right, off the screen, but where that curvy bit is. And just to the left of the picture as of now, is the photography museam

Unless it's funded by "Private Enterprise", it sure looks like a BIG WASTE of Tax Money!!!

And this is this bit:

The Bowl - the area surrounding City Hall. It is described as the pivotal area and showcase with a lake bordering Centenary Square. A pier type structure links it to the National Museum of Photography, Film and Television
National Museum of Photography, Film and Television





That is the bit that if you look at the 3 people in the lake, just above, and to the right. Looks like its got white spots on it.

Well...that's the bad thing about being ruled by a Monarchy instead of a Democracy!

On our side of the pond, Private Business would take the job, build a couple of shopping Malls, Movie theaters, and who knows what else...prolly houses or condos that overlook the whole thing!

Now, this bit is the main part:




Now, for this, on the left is the town hall, just. The photography museum is in direct alignment with the black bin at the front (just move up the picture).
And the one on the right with the dome is the Odeon.

So, now you know. How long will it last???

Not long, I think :(

That's the way we do things too ST. We are not ruled by a Monarchy either. They don't make our rules, our democratically elected government make theirs in effect. You're about 400 years out.
