Now the charity behind it want to know what young people would like to call the building.

Two names have been selected by a panel of young people from across the city, along with a logo, to be voted on.

It will either be known as The Hub or The Quad.


Voting, via the OnSide website, is due to close at lunchtime on Monday (31 July) but Youth Zone officials say they are likely to accept votes for a few days after this.
