From that image, it doesn't look a whole lot different from the previous iteration? Not too sure whether this will be a significant change on what was approved in 2016.

Images of previous version for reference:

This isn't a looker is it..
It's ok; there's certainly worse out there. It looks a solid enough design and good to see a fair amount of brick being used, or at least, I think it's light-coloured brick :D Not too sure on the whole steel/grey block that looks like it's just been wedged in from the top of the building but couldn't get it all the way through to street level for some reason... Still, it gives the building some decent height and it stops it from being a big bland brick box.

Yep it is, which is really worrying as this has pretty much nothing going for it.. Absolutely no effort has been made designing this and the render suggests the quality is going to be as bad as the design..
