The renderings make it look like a sad amalgam of everything that exists on that block with some purple spandrel thrown in just to make it worse. What I feel they should have gone for is something like the Vic or the Pearl - visually striking and making good use of the site. Those (hopefully very conceptual) renderings look tacky and hideous IMO and waste one of the only remaining opportunities to build something on that block that's both large-ish and not a dull slab. This is fronting the Citadel and will (presumably) be there for decades; we should be demanding better than this. With the right materials (and colours) it has potential to be a decent building but I'd hesitate to say a great one.
