These works will link into the nearby green space on Warwick Row really well.

Looks superb. The blank side elevation in itself doesn't look great but when looking at the building as a whole it clashes well with the glass. I presume this will feature quite prominently as a symbol of Coventry in City of Culture literature.

Would be good to see this lit up at night.

I hope those blocks are temporary. I guess they're there for security, but I can't see how a water park is a considered a prime target. Hopefully they'll be replaced with more tasteful bollards as part of the public realm works.

I kind of agree. It does look a bit like a substation with a ice large architectural feature on top. The brick work may eventually end up looking a bit dull later on in life. At the moment I think its ok for now.

Yeah - 10-20 years time it might have aged. Just wish it was further away from the Spire.
