All the lovely buildings in Boro that have been stupidly demolished then they try to give that junk heap class2 status.

The mind fucking boggles. :unlike:

True - if the shell had the potential to be made into apartments /office blocks then I would say go for it- save it.

it hasn't though it's in a shit hole that wouldn't even attract tourism---the fucking labour lefties at it again wanting to waste money- they tried the same with the blast-

Nadine Dorries has rescinded the grade II listing for the Dorman Long Tower at the behest of Ben Houchen.  We believe it is now due for demolition around 2am on Sunday.

Good. Itís a rotting reminder of Teessideís heavy industrial past. It has no,place in the modern economy needed now in the North East,and especially Teesside. Industrial heritage my arse.

Needs to come down!  Give it listed status and preserve it????  It's in an industrial part of Southbank.....NO-ONE will EVER go out of there way to visit it!  It's ugly, and it it were proposed as a new build today, everyone  would be up in arms about it!

Shame they're just gonna bulldoze it and not dynamite it! 💣💣💣

Unless it can be redeveloped for something sensible, which I can't see that happening then it should come down.  No point in keeping as a monument for the sake of it

Time to move on, memories are all well and good but it serves no purpose, it wonít generate tourist money. Knock it down and invest the restoration money in something more useful. I grew up with it but I have affection for it.

Aye, it has nothing to offer. Just a scruffy block of concrete with Dorman Long on it. Knock it down.

I was in redcar tonight. That vertical pier is a hideous carbuncle. What tat, that useless mayor drove it on but i guarantee it will be demolished in 15 years. Already looks shabby
