Notes: 4m project including department stores, supermarkets, shopping precinct, 12-storey hotel, 16-storey office block, multi-storey car park, bowling centre & social club.

It is possible that this development was not carried out by Hugh Martin & Partners. However in the RIBA Directory of 1980 Hugh Martin & Partner list a commerical development in Union Street. It is possible it is the same as the one reported in 'Building'.

There is a conflict of information with this building. The RIBA Directory for 1975 gives the cost as 185,000 which is totally at variance with the above. This needs to be re-checked in other directories.
