A few camera shots. It's looking very smart and the new build opposite looks very good too. My camera had low battery so couldn't get any shots but worth a gander if anyone near by.

A quick photo during a visit to town last week (don't get in as often as I used to).
I like the canyon effect down Fleet street and the fact that the BT tower looks 200m tall.

Good to see some high quality brickwork there

Is this now finished?

That's just the salt in the bricks being brought to the surface. It happens on the vast majority of buildings with new brickwork. Modern housing estates are the worst for it!

I like Brindley House, not the crappy new bit in front of. WHY do ALL redbrick development end up with a grey top floor? What's the ******* point? Just keep it brick, don't ruin it with ******* bland grey cladding.

Hmm.I was looking at the finished article vs the artist impression on page 1.

In the drawing:-
Look at the light glass tops.
Look at the red apparent balconies.
And the vertical pillars adding a decorative feature on the black and white( left side).

In the final thing:-
None of the above.

So in the artist pics, it looks medium detail 90s stle fare.Pretty good.
And the actual building?Not much like the artist pics.Pretty plain, bargain basement reskin that will date again.

Nothing hideous.Its passable.
But I think its bad that developers pretend its gonna be one thing.Then squeeze every penny out of it, to do sthg else.
