Nice to see SimpsonHaugh are doing something a bit different for a change and moving away from big glass boxes! Oh ……..

By Anon

The found space project is truly hideous and uninspired. The awkward angle next to the Beetham does what I thought was impossible and makes the Beetham look even worse.

By Lin

All this development. Big blocks you can’t stop half way up. Will be a race to get out first before the chairs are taken away. It will happen again

By Sceptical

What are you talking about? Found space is gorgeous. Tall, sleek glass skyscrapers are stunning. The plan for the tram line is ingenious.

Get it built!

I much prefer the developments in Liverpool.

By Liverpolian

Agree with Anonymous. The plans for Beetham’s neighbours are stunning.Uniform architecture is what makes for a great skyline.

By Elephant

You would think Liverpool didnt exist.

By Scouse B

The scousers are back I see.

By Simmo

Simpson’s taking the proverbial now, isn’t he? More of the same bland rubbish.

By Anothernon

This is called Place North West to be fair, not Place Greater Manchester. The Scousers are entitled to their views, as are people from Sunderland point.
