Decent enough but surely this site is a landmark gateway site - which this development isn't saying

I'm liking that brickwork, it fits in well with the location.

I agree with Man Med, a bigger statement would have been good for this location.

Too much of the provincial tax office circa 1973 about it for my liking.

As ManMed has said this is a gateway / landmark kinda place not a meh block of flats place.. Tucked away round the back of the Quays they'd be fine. Here they're embarrassing.

I like these. Nice and simple but the renders look smart.

This isn't a gateway site, though. This is off that road around the corner from Old Trafford. The plot behind it - which you can see in ghost form here - is a gateway site. This is just a side road though.

As I said in the city thread, I like this - think it's a solid addition. It is clean, simple and has context with its surroundings. It'll certainly add to the density and bring it down past the quays, it also ties in very nicely with the Clippers quay buildings - really hope it goes ahead.

The brickwork on the outside of the two blocks will make or break this scheme

Funnily enough it reminds me of that old tax office building near stretford/old Trafford. Shite, basically.

Bit of Wilburn Wharf about them.
That chain sculpture...is there two of them or have they moved (in renderland) the existing one?

Just had a quick search through the forum and, not that it matters, but I'm pretty sure this is the exact location where Modus was proposed.
