Most Bullish Pre-crash Articles

Recommended Posts

I just stumbled on this gem of an article in another thread. The article is from 2005.


Dozens of people in Birmingham city centre queued all night in a bid to snap up an apartment in Birmingham's landmark Rotunda building. Doors opened at 11am and by 11.20 all available apartments in Rotunda had been reserved despite the apartments not being ready for nearly three years.
"It's got the X factor; it's iconic; it's THE address in Birmingham. I feel rock 'n' roll when I see the Rotunda!"

Tav, the proud owner of two Rotunda apartments

I qued from 8.30 Friday morning with pals and we were the first there and bought one each.it is for investment purposes, it was well worth the wait and the company was great, t overall it was so exciting and a very emotional day.

Sheer comedy in tone given what we know now. I love the last quote with the group of mates picking up apartments like sweets.

Any other nominations of vomit-inducing crap like the above?

The two hundred and thirty two apartments in Rotunda range in price from around £150,000 for a city pad to nearly £500,000 for a penthouse. Each apartment is shaped like a 'slice of cake', radiating out from around a central core, and all boasting views of the city.

you can look them up at postcode:

B2 4PA

it'll be like a slow-mo view of the decline of UK regional cities post-Brown-boom...
