    That's a new building? Looks like an office block from the 80's.

    Can people not just wait until it's finished before slating it?

    Do you think it's iconic in any way, shape or form?

  7. I walked past it the other day and couldn't believe how shite it looked, hopefully the finishing touches bring it to life a bit more, looks like a tribute to the high rise flats across the road at present

    Doesn’t look great mind. Let’s see when it is finished. Not sure the ‘view’ will pull people in mind.

    Just what the city centre needs man, more awful 70s esque architecture.

    Sunderland city centre could be magnificent but you'd need to spend fortunes on the concrete cubes to sort it out. Don't think there's the will of the money sadly.

    Pointless really....the city centre is full of generic chain shops, pound shops, neglected buildings and run down bars. As soon as something a bit upmarket opens it closes down within months. There's no appetite for upmarket shops or restaurants nor iconic buildings. The football club has become a sad reflection of large parts of the city.

    ffs man! If the council done nothing with the Vaux site they would get slated, now given they actually secured a huge investment contract and construction has been happening on the site they are getting slated too! can't win! :rolleyes:

    Nobody's slating them except for idiots and jealous sandies. Empty vessels making a noise etc

    The town centre somehow needs footfall both during the day and on a nighttime ,this and the college being brought into the town centre will hopefully be a step in the right direction .

    For a population of nearly 300k the town centre is actually no representation of that populous .

    I don't often agree with you but if this building is the sign of things to come then it will be a massive let down.

    I walked past it the other day and it looks like that office building near the Burton house.
