I was looking at the X1 development in Manchester and thought there were some similarities to Charles street tower, i'm guessing the differences in the render to completion will be similar for our development

Hopefully not! The renders look great but the reality is utter shite! They've used that cheap rainscreen cladding crap, made out of aluminium.

Bridge St, with it's glass-fibre-reinforced concrete panels (which look like stone), aluminum and high-spec glazing will look much better!

I have to say the quality of which Bridge St is going to be built at has me really excited!

And although the Quaity of X1 Manchester looks awful, and the developer tried to get away with the dark grey cladding at the bottom before coming under fire from the council, that is one serious development. All four towers are basically sold out already.
