Fits in perfectly with the rest of the Central Equity shitsville that now proudly comprises our glorious city's entire southern skyline vista.

The buyer of that grade carpark really needs to do something spectacular.

What a wasteland to build in. CE has ruined the area and this is actually midly interesting (nothing to cheer about though)
