This needed to have the decorative cladding on all four elevations. The grey cladding doesn’t look good and it’s clearly visage from Bristol Street.

I'm more than happy for the cladding to 'fade to grey'.

To be fair that back elevation is pretty bland on other blocks hopefully something can be built in front of it

Let's hope so, because as it stands that's horrendous.

I like it but it needs the coloured cladding on all three visible elevations. It looks terrible from Bristol Street where you can see the grey cladding.

I must say, that’s an abomination.

Birmingham needs to get rid of the 70’s tetris-patterned tack, not introduce more of it.
