It might be worth pointing out that it isn't finished yet.I am checking google earth and it still looks out of place and shit. It they had built it at the back of the pie factory it would look like it fitted in but next to the Lowry and IWM? It clashes and looks bad.
A cladding of Coronation Street characters and famous scenes would have been a great idea.(thank you, I know) It would have eventually become a tourist attraction, bringing more people to the home of the Coronation Street set, the IWMN, Mediacity, and the Quays.Somone posted this on Twitter
They will come.They rejected allowing tours, the tourists get in the way of filming. However believe me the perimeter will have scenes and hoardings up just like the BBC buildings are plastered in advertising for their shows thats rotated now and then.
I did see an article about Bill Roache testing out the new cobbles, so they might have been laid already?
