Building Continues on Colchester's Firstsite

Building on the Firstsite centre in Colchester continues apace.

Firstsite has been designed by Rafael Vinoly, the internationally-famous architect who has also designed the Performing Arts Centre in Leicester, which is also in the process of being built.

Firstsite is costing 16.5 million.

On the site which has been occupied for many years by Colchester's Bus Station, it has been designed as a multi-purpose arts, entertainment and visitor centre within the town's Roman Walls and close to Colchester Castle.

The centre's opening is planned for Spring 2008.
