Yes - not a fan of the rendered section but overall nice - the brick is a very good match to the neighbouring early Victorian terrace.

I think the best aspect of the dev is that it's residential, it has a positive impact on the street.
Some things remain the same though - there was a big scuffle of sorts on it yesterday at about 9 in the morning, about 100 people had stopped in various places to watch the proceedings - construction workers had to intervene.
Various comments of 'I love this street, always great for the entertainment' etc being made
There's a new water-main being laid, hence the mess. The obstacle course is being retained however, save some Mall-type red surfacing being added.
Here's the new red-brick from a few weeks ago - the corner is nice but I cannot believe that plastic or whatever they are infill panels are still being used in 2004. The residential red-brick across the road is a nice contribution too I think.
