Does anyone know the current state of play for the re-use and refurbishment of this building? I see that detailed planning permission was granted on 17 January 2017 for the use of the building as a 180-bed hotel and 4,667 square metres of offices. Other buildings were permitted in the same decision notice but it's not clear which, if any, of these form part of the already completed development (the dwellings, Premier Inn etc.) within the old Baltic Centre site.

When I went along to a presentation, by Hunter Page Planning, at the Novotel in about September 2015 I got the impression that the plan at that time was for Hyundai to use the tower as their flagship showroom and offices. Is this still the intention?

Whatever the precise plans I wonder if there is any indication of a timetable for the refurbishment. Alfa-Laval moved to Camberley in about 1996 and the tower has been derelict since then. It's high time for this eyesore to be given a makeover and for the advertising hoardings to be removed.

As an aside, it may be that about 137 housing units have already been built on the old Baltic Centre (which is now called Westside and includes Baltic Avenue). These were originally described as a mix of private and "affordable" homes and when they first went on the market in 2015 prices began at 310,000. I see from Zoopla that the average price in Baltic Avenue has been 535,000 and a 4-bed unit recently went for 795,000.
