I agree, the side elevation looks interesting, I'm not convinced about the design of the front elevation though.

I'm not sure about the location, on the hallowed ground of Recue Rooms/Stealth/Rock City...

However as a building, I must say this is pretty fantastic. What more can we ask for from a modern building? Nice big glass frontages, nice shapes, smart finish, nice brickwork....

NO silly cladding. NO blank walls. NO mental colours or cheapo, slanty shapes. This will look smart, and pleasant for years to come and complements the illustrious NTU buildings opposite.

Frequented it as Easy Street, then New York, New York and then Stealth which obviously means I didn't grow old gracefully.

On the actual site here was Templar's, there for years (top floor where the weeds were overgrowing in the first pic) and a car in the entrance that was claimed to be from The Saint??

I am really excited by this design; really simple forms, nice material pallete combined with some lovely but modest architecturual elements. Hopefully it isn't refined too much during the development process as I recon this is more or less spot on.

On a side note, NTU seem to be on a bit of role in recent years what with their Pavilion development at Clifton, the former Registry office refurb, potential expansion on Guildhall site and small landscaping works around their campus such as on the Shakespeare/Dryden Street junction. Hopefully they can keep up the quality.

Demolition appears to have been completed. Now we await the approval of the scheme before construction commences.

The design is ok I guess, it looks like every other building going up at the moment.

It doesn't fit it with the rest of the buildings on that stretch though.
