Highgate has suddenly become Lowgate.
I rode through what was formally knows as ‘Highgate’ today and discovered most of the high-rise flats were either gone or going.
What ashame it is to see parts of Birmingham deteriorate like this.
Lets hope they build more ‘apartments’ in the void because that is just what we Birmingham folk need.
I think they call it ‘Regeneration’.
Regeneration my foot, it seems our council either overlook prime spots for development or bulldoze them.
Look at what is going on over at the ‘Lower east side’ aka Digbeth.
Amazing buildings raised to the ground leaving nothing but rubble, all for the sake of apartments that may be built…
Years of Birmingham history, erased.
