Judith I did try to enter a link for you but not to be, original architects T P Bennett hope this helps

Thanks,  I did do a search, but the only recent things that I was finding were on the Birmingham Mail site, which I can't open as there are so many ads that they crash the computer.

I found this from a year ago on the BBC speculating that it could become offices -

Judith I've found this hope it's self explanatory

TP Bennett said a greater quantity of retail space had been envisaged when it was commissioned to draw up expansion proposals for the department store in 2015, but House of Fraserís plunge into administration last year had changed the plans.

If voting made any difference , they wouldn't let us do it.

Thank you.  I did look on their site & didn't find anything specifically.  Not too sure about the blg glass roof, but it's better than knocking down the building & starting again I suppose.

And yes, I don't suppose there will be as much need for retail space there now.  Hopefully, any office space will be affordable and attractive to clients as there is already a lot of empty office space around the city centre, with more being built almost continually.
