That is a disgrace, and even worse around the back.

That can't be a serious proposal.

Hmm, did we need a thread for this?

Whatever, here's the website for the development http://www.newprimark.co.uk/

And the awful Moor Street elevation

Disappointing use of dark patterns by Primark on that website.

Pretty disappointing all round really.

Seems like a perfect opportunity to riff off the Future Systems Selfridges design when cladding the old Pavilions site.

I filled in my comments, and one of the questions was "Do you want to be told when jobs are available at Primark".

There was a tick box saying "Yes" so I left it blank.

Brilliant design.
Terrible isn't it, well I left my feedback even though I was forced to click the jobs button.. Considering they want to put the planning app through this month, I doubt any of our comment will be taken on bored anyway.. Huge opportunity wasted here.

Upsets me a little because of how long we've waited for this, I think Sefton knows how I feel

I just hope I can come back to this page in 3 years and say "I can't believe I didn't like this at first!"

It's hard to believe that such a poor design has managed to get to this advanced stage.

So many senior people would have seen this and somehow the architects haven't been sent back to the drawing board yet.

I think maybe they took inspiration from the tate modern extension for this

Yes, I tried that too.

It's a very effective way of getting a very biased survey. Everyone who wants a job there will praise it and support it.

Bit dishonest really.

It was always pure fiction, as is every plan for HS2 so far.
