When compared to Tim Groom’s masterpieces and Hawkins\Brown proposal this is shocking. And you can tell it’s modular too. Hodders Oldham St development would look suit here.

Public realm is decent enough. Bit of a sun trap too. Lets get that tarmac sorted please.

According to Hodder this has now completed.
Not a fan of the plastic ivy but this development is generally fine.
Fortunately 3 sides of it will be hidden with better buildings, 2 of them from Tim Groom.
