Default Commerce House, Chester August 2010 - 09-08-2010, 14:45

Years ago this place gathered taggers and skaters alike, Me being one of them. Back then it was finding a decent set of stairs or bank rather than rooftopping the building.

Commerce House and Chester Bus Station are soon to be demolished as part of the Northgate Development project. The office block was once used by Cheshire County Council who has now been replaced by Cheshire West & Chester and Cheshire East councils.

The actual site that Commerce House is stood on will be developed into a turnaround & bus station similar to the bus station in Warrington with multi-storey parking close by.

The building is in a state of disrepair inside with many of the lighting fittings, walls & radiators broken or strewn across the floors with a mass of computer keyboards and mice as well as a few broken windows.

Thanks, Gone...

Top marks, this place has been on my hit list for bloody ages. Just couldn't find a convenient open door.

It was a dump when I used to attend meetings there. If anything it looks somewhat better now!
