Yeah I've got to say from a residential perspective this blows every building in MediaCity out the water bar City Lofts, which is a diamond in an ocean of mediocrity.

X1 MediaCity is a sick joke.
Millenium Tower is a mess.
Duet is fine but unremarkable.
The NV Buildings are fine from the front but the quality is poor and having such a clear "back" to a building is textbook atrocious design.
The less said about the brown plywood resi towers around The Lowry the better.
The taller circular building at the BBC has a fine form but the quality is dire.

Sheppard Robson's Salford Uni building, Conran's City Lofts, BUPA, Philharmonic building. The cladding on these is pretty dire and the crown, well that doesn't even exist. Tama didn't specify what kind of building. If we are solely talking residential then Duet is better than these and thats saying something and I've always like the NV buildings.

It’s not all working yet but at least the first tower has a RGB LED strip around the top to match their neighbours.

There’s also vertical blue light strips on the north facing walls.

Barclays Bank confirmed for the Lightbox. Oddly it’s the unit facing the water as opposed to an eaterie. New hoardings with logo are up around it.

Does anyone know what this is called yet? Is it the Lightbox, the Green Rooms? Is it one of each?

I've been looking online, now and in Jan when The Green Rooms were announced and I can't find anything official that says for sure it is just one of them. I sent a message on Twitter (@thegreenroomsuk) before my nap but have had no response yet. There is also no Lightbox account on Twitter I can find.

Chapel Wharf is cheap and nasty filler. Really not attractive at all. These are far better.

The Lightbox are for sale apartments, The Green Rooms are PRS. JLL are handling the Lightbox, someone else is doing The Green Rooms.

Thread name change, for what it's worth? The Lightbox and The Green Rooms?
