On post #202 on 10/06/18 bigchrisfgb made this comment/question

I'm not so sure the 'stone' cladding looks as good going up the building as the renders showed, think it would look better only at ground level. From the pictures I can't tell if it's real stone cladding or plastic faux cladding. Were you able to tell which one it was when taking the photos? I think the stone cladding would age better on the building, plastic would obviously not.
Finally an answer - it looks as if it is "reconstructed stone" - see later post about it, https://www.skyscrapercity.com/showpost.php?p=164602294&postcount=274

Would be good to see something happening on the Cemex site next to this site, permission was granted ages ago but seems like it is standing still, wonder what the issue is ? I do not think and CGI's have been put out for Cemex site.
.
Also the Pottery Bank site, where a London developer, Olympian Homes, proposed to build up to 500 residential homes.

Just realised this is the ex Cemex site that has been cleared, maybe soon some groundworks might start happening.

Has anyone seen any design plans for this site ?

Sourced a couple of concept designs for the Cemex site. This area, all down the river front, will support good density whilst getting rid of the derelict eyesore areas.

That stone work doesn’t look good from a distance. It really does give it a car home look on the ground level. I’d love to have seen the brick work continue all the way down or have real stone work instead.
Overall though it’s a very good development.

I wonder if this is PRS too? It's like the new student accommodation.

I do think this scheme will improve the impression arriving into Newcastle by train or via the Redheugh Bridge.
