There are a few elevation diagrams but nothing major. Basically says whats being amended in the description above.
Thats the oddest looking crane I've ever seen :lol:
Which plot half_empty? The mini car park next to this?
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?)
I don't know anything myself. I was thinking about it recently though. Theres also the 90's redbrick building a little further up, Reich House.

I don't think you can really compare those two images nor can you say how drastic the change will be.
Old CGI. It wont be clad in that material. It's being clad in brick.

Are Calderpeel just updating what could have been?

Looks more like an office block from the 90's to me. Not sure on this one.
A lot better could have been constructed too
A lot worse could have been constructed here, pretty inoffensive to me.
