Five year anniversary of the infamous car park demolition

posted in: News 0

2016 represents five years since the infamous Owen Luder brutalist structure was pulled down, reports the Newcastle Chronicle.

The car park had been on a gradual shutdown since 1995 when the upper levels were closed before finally fully shutting its ramp for the last time in 2007. Surprisingly, the demolition didn’t start for another four years, which, whilst great for fans of the film or brutalist architecture, was not so great for local residents as the building truly became an eyesore.

Fans of the film were offered the chance to later purchase parts of the rubble for £5 a piece.
