This imposing wreck of a building is easily visible from the Cross City trainline going north out of the city centre. Its sorry form looms large against the skyline, the water tower, still intact, stands tall above the rest of the building. Situated in the industrial Eastside on Belmont Row, this beautiful red brick building was built in 1899 and was the Co-op furniture factory, it was later used for the manufacturing of weights and scales. The building was set to be redeveloped but in early 2007 fire took out around 75% of the building and then exactly a week later high winds made the front facade collapse in on itself and it has stood like this ever since. I wonder what will become of it?
