It's alright, a bit bland though, should look okay. I had no idea that this development even existed though.

As skopie said, it looks OK. I suppose it will extended the re-development zone out a bit any new builds to build up desnity is good really. I did know about this development, although there has been little information on it...

Its a pretty poor render. The real thing should look better,

True, having now seen the 3d render (wouldn't load before) I quite like the shape, suppose it will all come down to the cladding like most buildings.

Still, it's another 18 storey building on the skyline, that's about 60-70m?

If I remember correctly. The proposed office element has been scrapped by the developers in favour of the apartments.

Tis indeed good that the strange looking gray office element has disappeared. The renders on the Brewster Bye website look fairly poor, but I like the first phase of City Island, and have high hopes for the next phase. Its a little close to the Inner Ring Road for my liking, however I like the curved nature of the design and think it will sit nicely between the river and canal. Looks likes it due to start in early January, but then we've not seen any publicity or marketing, but if they are that confident and sold the bulk of the first phase quickly, I guess they are ready for phase 2/3. Marvellous. Another site to keep an eye on.

The renderings look very conceptual, rather than final impressions of what it will look like.

From what I remember, the building was 56m tall. There was supposed to be an office block, but it's not that grey thing attached to the main block, if that's waht you're thinking of. There were plans sumbitted and approved for large block (10 floors or so), with 2 huge funnel-like features going up one side, giving it a rather industrial look. Not exactly Lloyds, but it was an interesting concept. Still, since that was 3 years ago, it would be foolish to expect exactly the same plans are still around today.

Looks like the next phase is starting as there appears to be a drilling rig on site.

can't imagine it got planning permission based on those rather basic renders. I'll reserve judgement until we see the actual materials to be used.

do they not need to demolish that low rise light industrial block fronting the Inner Ring Road first?

It will be great to see in the near future (well around 2010ish) an entrance on the inner ring road which is walled by this, Mayfair and the Spiracle with possibly more... It would be really good. Is it me or does the inner ring road seem rather unorganised at this point too? Just kinda a stretch of tarmac where cars can do what they want...

I would have thought those renders would suffice, as renders only make a small part of the planning application. Elevation and plan drawings make up the majority of the application, along with calculation sheets for the structure, energy usage, traffic, environmental effects, compliance with the miriad of regulations, actual samples of finish materials, etc.

Are you drunk when you travel on it! It couldn't be any clearer to drive on, not like the crazy city centre loop.

Generally its fine, its just the bit between Armley gyratory and the flyover at the Yorkshire Post.
