I was expecting it to be a bit greener.

Something was bugging me about my photo's and I have just realised what it is, they have reduced to size of the windows and replaced with panels. What is it with developers, do they not want us to see out of windows. It is only 1 row of windows but it makes a huge difference imo.

I knew something looked funny with the photo's.

Probably due to buildability in this case. A structural element of the building Could have been needed and that impacts the external appearance.

I wanted to take a look at the green cladding. It looks ok so far. My photos donít really show any changes since the last update by BrumX.

I was round this way recently and I really noticed the way that Bath Court, Arden Gate and The Toybox are helping to create a dense, big city feel. It felt good.

Forgot to mention St Martin's Place.

Yes this area has really taken off. I think itís mainly down to the success of Park Central. Itís completely changed and improved the feel of the area. I canít understand why the Park Central, mixed community approach hasnít been applied to every council/social housing estate in the country. It works!

Looking good so far this one, not as green as I thought, but I think I actually prefer it, not too in your face.
