Urban Decay

This section of the website will look at those buildings that have, until fairly recently had a use but have now been allowed to become derelict, neglected and vandalised.

--------------------------------------

 

The first site is a derelict building on Great Northern Road. Amazingly this used to be an open plan office building called Pheonix House. For many years it was the home of East Midlands Electricity before being sold in 2001 to a company called Clientlogic who carried out call centre work for customers such as the BT broadband service. Rebranded to Sital in 2007 the company closed the building in 2009 and it has remained empty ever since. Remarkably, in only 2010, the building was stil reported to be in good condition but was threatened with demolition if a buyer could not be found due to the cost of taxes on an empty building. Despite this the building still stands although it is difficult to see how this was ever used as an office.
