This building looks like it's going to be quite nasty but it's small enough to be insignificant. Does anyone know who owns the corner plot (corner of Chapel Street and New Bailey?)

Still it has a pretty significant impact on the look of the building.

I definitely think changing the Black spandrels with Blue brick is a good move. It will however be interesting to see just how Blue the Blue brickwork is.

The black is going blue. You can imagine the fancy render with blue bricks instead of black plastic panels! Of course you can use the images to compare the designs.

Though of course imagination is a lot different to seeing the proper completed end product. But I think it's clear that having that as brick instead of plastic is a big improvement to the design.
