Hotel La Tour construction August update

Here is an update on the construction of the new Hotel La Tour on Moor Street Queensway from 26th August with work rapidly progressing with the hotel due to open in February 2012. Since my previous update of the 3rd August, Hotel La Tour construction August update, more pre-cast concrete sections of the next floor have been installed.

The Birmingham Mail reported on the 25th Sugust however that 'Skeleton is found on building site' with workers discovering a skeleton which a forensic archeologist later dated as between 150 and 200 years old.

The land was once part of the cemetery for St Bartholomew church which was destroyed in the Second World War as shown in the map below.

Pictures showing progress from the 26th August are below:
