Re: £50m Redevelopment.
The long term businesses that inhabited moved on for a variety of reasons, an awful lot were banks and the like and the trend for that type of building is they become bars or restaurants, who the believe they will get the theatre trade.
The redevelopment of Collingwood Street into predominantly bars in recent years means we have lost the spread of bars and eateries across the city to a few concentrated areas.
We may have more variety in those areas but not the character that some of the older establishments had.
