The cost of the building suggested will be about £800,000, and this will be found by a big corporation and other city interests.
Under the new proposes of the L.C.C., it is hoped to build to a height of 150 ft. Around the outside of each floor will be a 20-ft. covered roadway and a footpath which, by way of ramps, will permit vehicles to be driven 11 mile from the street to the roof. The showroom area will be about three times that of the main hall of Olympia and will be divided between individual traders. It is anticipated that the building will be ready for use within 12 months.
