They seem to have deleted the Millennium Bridge from that render

That looks pretty decent. Gives it a bit of colour to what is, IMO a bland building.

Just out of interest, why do you think the Lowry is a bland building?

Is this not something similar to.........



Are we becoming a city of add-ons, that aren't necessary? And do we need to be told it's the Lowry via 4ft(?) white letters?

I don't mind this - it's quite in keeping with the inside decor and it brings a waterside deadzone to life!

Just never really liked it as a building.

I have to agree, to a certain extent. I like the contrast between the metallic exterior and the colourful interior that exists at the moment. The red add-on to the right of the render would impact too much on how the building looks from the square, in my opinion.

I love that extension, the current building is sub-Guggenheim crap. I think that adds a nice contemporary Pompidouesque waterfront feature. Looks great.

We can make comparisons to the Guggenheim all we like, but I think it's a pretty special building.

I feel what it represents and the purpose it is put to, transends any criticism of the design.
A performance space that is world class, and a collection that is unique.
Basically it does the job, and in my opinion does it well.

Indeed - was certainly a catalyst for the next stage of development in the quays that spawned Media City etc.

Great building, The Lowry. The whole thing is nuts and that's why I like it.

My only problem with the proposed changes are the colours of those 'boxes' on the outside. They're not in keeping with any of the (also nuts) internal colour scheme(s) and it would be nice to reuse the orange and blue, rather than bring two new colours into the mixture. They're a little tame and I'm not sure they'd hold up well against the interior, especially when lit at night.

Though it seems unnecessary, the lettering on the outside is not a bad idea, particularly on that side. So few people seem to realise there's actually a restaurant in there; if they're planning on having it (and the bar) open all the time, it's a very sensible move.

Tidying up that side is shrewd. At the moment, if you sit outside in the almost constant wind, your view is blocked by a thick white RSJ placed perfectly at eye level.

In short; get it done, but sort out the colours.

Completely agree. It's a good idea, but the chosen colours look naff.

Salford Quays won't win any architecture awards.

Still, to have such an area as one of Gtr Manchester's districts isn't to be sniffed at.

And with the addition of X1 Mediacity(4 x 26 storey towers), the Salford Quays Skyline will only get bigger and perhaps better?

Customs House...

Is Customs House actually still a Bruntwood building though? Office to resi doesn't seem very 'their thing'...

Still absolutely crying out for ten times more restaurants, decent shops, Wetherspoons etc, makes me sad!
