    Most of the pics give a very limited sense of what the design would actually look like. Keeping this in mind, I favour the one with the giant ball bearing, which looks highly novel and distinctive and matches the industrial heritage of the gasholder. I also like the idea of the helter-skelter one – a fun little concept that will appeal to the many families on nearby housing estates. But, again, from the renderings it’s hard to appreciate how it might look.

    Oh I am keeping my fingers crossed it will happen! The current development on the warehouse site just looks like so much retail and business tarted up slightly.
