What shape?


Comment by Mick on 13th March 2013 at 00:38
A beautiful modern building it sits in very nicely with surroundings.

It will be a great for the youth of Wigan, maybe even help to developed some future Wigan Olympians.

Well done Dave.....thanks for the progress photo.....cheers!!!


Comment by Andrew Fishburn on 13th March 2013 at 06:53
Smashing shot as usual, Dave, and a great record of the changing face of Wigan. After seeing how successful the Bolton Lads and Girls Club is I am pleased that Wigan's kids are getting a club of their own. It is a force for good.


Comment by Scholes Malc on 13th March 2013 at 07:54
this will be a great addition to the town replacing a little used open space frequented by alcos & smackheads
Well done to all concerned


Comment by Al.C. on 13th March 2013 at 09:19
I still don't see why they had to build here with so many empty prmeises not far away in the town centre.


Comment by Roger on 13th March 2013 at 12:41
Another green space gone for good, if the council could get away with building houses on menses park they would, what was wrong with converting the old police station for example


Comment by tricia on 13th March 2013 at 14:36
I agree with Al. C. It should have been built elsewhere. It is good that it will be of use but I still think that the grey one is an extrememly ugly building and would be more at home on an industrial estate. NO taste whatsoever.. it looks like a sardine can.


Comment by Catherine on 13th March 2013 at 20:47
I saw this at night last week all lit up. It looked really good.


Comment by Ellen on 13th March 2013 at 23:28
Nothing wrong with these buildings...
BUT, they could be any anonymous building, for whatever purpose, anywhere in the world. To me, they do not represent any of the character or individuality of Wigan! But that's just my humble opinion!


Comment by Lizzie down under on 14th March 2013 at 00:37
Won't mention anything about paving....:-)
Cheers!!!

How can a plain box be described as "beautiful"

It's like a mini Heinz warehouse!

Compare it with such as the old Tech, now the town hall...That's architectural beauty


Comment by Al.C. on 14th March 2013 at 09:48
The light coloured bit looks like a stack of shipping containers on a dock somewere, the brick part will always look unfinished to me.
