This project has been getting a lot of negative comments, but in the flesh it's actually alright. Not award winning but it's alright. The cladding catches the light really well. My only criticism would be the random grey top floor that does stand out and is rather ugly.

How does this looking in the flesh Bum X? I think this is one that looks better in real life than in photos. But I haven’t seen it a while.

I have been called some things in my life but Bum X is a bit much Kingsheathen, he he he

To be honest it looks the same as my photo, very blue. I would be lying if I said it looked better or worse. I can't tell the difference tbh.

That’s the most progress they’ve made in one week the entire build! About time this got completed seems to have gone on forever
I'd say they've got a 5 or 6 month deadline ready for the September 2020 intake. Plenty of time for cladding and testing.

The green and blue contrast works... the grey/tarmac and blue no.

I think we can agree the building behind looks rather naff though.

I think it looks good. Not great but definitely good. It’s an impressive building and a massive improvement on what was there before. Shame it isn’t taller.
