The cladding is still there, but unfortunately it is facing the wrong way for a photo.

Will the cladding resemble the cladding on the Carnegie Pavillion at the cricket ground when viewed close up?

It wouldn't surprise me if the concrete cladding is the main cladding.

i wouldn't mind if the concrete panels were the end finish, i think it looks kinda cool. but more likely it will look like the cricket ground

Your lack of enthusiasm for anything Leeds sometimes makes me think you are a Manc in a Loiners disguise!!

The curved bits look okay, but everything else... no thanks. Why would you want more concrete, especially in this part of the city?!

it's concrete, but in a brutally good way. no crappy pebble dash like woodhouse carpark. i could be proved wrong but i think the green cladding looks cheap, the carnegie certainly does. a slate grey arena would become iconic, stick on some green clad? not for me
