What is planned for the ground floor/non-accommodation? There has to be a market for a historic hotel building right next door to a tower full of students!

I really hope I'm not one who is considered to jump in just to post negativity and criticism, but I have to make an exception in this case to say that looks horrible, just totally irredeemably horrible.

Drove past this a little earlier and it definitely looks better in person, it's not great but it is not a complete hatchet job. Lets not forget the jewel in the crown (the green wall) hasn't been installed yet, so the final outcome still has a way to go. Some notable greenery on the skyline would look great imo.

You guys are so negative.

I actually quite like this one. When you compare it to the other student buildings like dwell and the cheese
grater on waymouth street, this one has come up quite nicely.

If Dwell and the Swiss cheese building on Waymouth are the standard, then we're stuffed.

Cheese grater is the SAHMRI building I think.

I wonder if the Synergy cowboys will get much more work after this.
Delays, poor building practices, bad blood with all sorts of neighbours and to top it off an ugly building with some design flaws that didn't get noticed.

Until you notice the "design f'aw" now houses the Uni Lodge" branding, and it was deliberate all along....

Doesn't look amazing, but doesn't look terrible either.
Walking on over....
