I do love the wide variety of views on here - just goes to show you how subjective something like Architecture is and how you simply can't please everybody all of the time.

I think it's great - it looks very bold and different to anything else in the city centre.

The variety of opinion means it's made a statement if nothing else! That's architecture for you, you are right there!

Overall I like it, but I'll always be frustrated by the totally different colours compared to the renders. I don't dislike them, but I preferred the original colours. There's also the odd thing here and there I don't like, such as some of the black brickwork that has been mentioned above.

Overall for me it's a success, but not perfect. I hope the planned towers on Newport Road stick to what we've currently seen, and God knows what's going on at the other Watkin Jones site.

No news. Planning was granted to start within 5 years, so it could still be a year or two. I would hope once Bridge Street is completely finished in a month or so that this will get going.
