How on earth they got away with building such mediocrity is beyond me.

oh purleeze! Spare us the mind numbing sales pitch dross. A cut and paste job from a million other sales brochures which is manifest banality and architectural idiocracy writ large. Just build a good building that can speak for itself

Considering the location and the price tags thats pretty unforgivable.

What I can't figure out is why the black panels are on the same plane as the limestone rainscreen. Makes the whole facade look very flat and cheapens the appearance of the stone.

That's poor. Par for the course with city planners unfortunately.

Have we learnt nothing? After covid all homes should have outside space be it a balcony or terrace.

The shape of things to come.
Hopefully more on the way to complete the new neighbourhood.

Out with the light industrial / big box retail -- and a 405 certainly was boxy -- and in with the lifestyle flats.

Not great design -- tight filler at best.
But why the anger and spite -- surely the Nuffield posing palace is the local eyesore?

Jonny Fast - You sure it wasn't Park Quadrant you passed? The build quality there is beyond honking!

I had a look at Park Quadrant's flats a while back, not long after I'd been in a new-ish HA flat in the East End and the housing association flat was better designed and finished. Didn't cost £700k, though.

Seem to recall this having undergone a number of iterations-each of which was as bad as the last. The result is horribly over-wrought and mean, a building that looks blankly and blandly to its surroundings. Flat and lacking modulation – it has that look of revitecture with stuck-on details like the bay windows that speak a totally different language to the whole, though with technology like that, the least you might expect is co-ordination of the wall panels and window openings. Schoolboy stuff.

The Drum Group have a reputation for producing mediocre developments. This help cement it. Dull, over-priced, sub-standard.
