Yeah that is a shame. Do they use the Bonded Warehouse for anything at the moment?
AFAIK No, but when Granada have made intentions on relocation then the bonded warehouse albeit a converted one was always top choice, probably only home to ITV Granada's Regional Output, but these plans have never got off the ground and the way things are looking I don't think this will be happening at all.
Arn't ITV bosses mulling over moving the present Manchester studios to the new site where BBC is going, in Salford - this would be just a case of building a new Coronation Street set (at least Coronation Street would then be in its native City of Salford rather than being filmed in Manchester!!!!), but everything else will already be in place with thank to the Beeb!!!!!!!
I do undertsnad that there are quite a few construction companies wanting the land which ITV presently own (i.e. Granada), and the price is pretty high.
ITV - unused land - move somewhere cheaper - make a killing on selling the land they already own - shareholders happy at making even more money!!!!!!!!
