It's a building site Bren - What do you expect! It will probably look quite nice when the new apartments are built.

Bren, firstly.. its a multi storey car park, they never are designed to look beautiful, and second, as soon as the 'Tower Grand' goes up, you won't see any of this, the second reason why it isn't a nice finish

The ancient view from Longshoot to Wigans Church tower are now gone.

In my view its desecration, dispossession and disillusionment.

To top it all off, the building is making a loss. Duh!

If Wigan stayed like a beautiful market town then it could compete on beauty and the feel good factor. Not a big ugly concrete jungle.
