I don't mind then, something different than boring red brick.
I agree whole heartedly with your comment,they remind me of a Jail.If I had to live In something that looked like that I would Cry myself to Sleep every Night.3cvf8
I agreewith Brian they remind me of a Butlins or Pontins holiday chalets!!!!
Blech!! And it's going to take more than those two sticks of trees to hide it.
Not bad looking for a factory.
Totally hideous... and not well thought out.
In ten years time, when it is realised that tenants are not going to stick around all that long they will be converted into office blocks... then they will not only be hideous, but offensive. They redeveloped part of Wigan's past for office blocks.
Hi Brian. Yes, Souless, cheap, thrown-up ghettos
Not just these that are hideous but a lot of the apartments that have been thrown up all over the borough are our future slums.
The wood feature on the corner will look terrible in a few years time.Wood needs far more maintenance than brick and cement.
I think they look very nice a modern they might look hideous at the moment compared to the rest of the surrounding but the rest of the surroundings wants knocking down.
Including the Orwell pub and the way to Wigan exhibition
Folk used to moan about the dark satanic mills. When they where knocked down, some cried shame. A couple of picks back The Seven Stars pub. No customers. Not a nice building, and being removed. There are those that do , and those that moan. Take your pick.
I dont see what all the fuss is about, The apartment block doesnt look so bad, compared to the mess Wigan council made of the new market in the 80s, this looks ok, if i ever had to sell my 3 bedroom 2 bathroom villa with pool and room for a pony, and return to Wigan, i would buy a flat here.
I don't think these look hideous! I think it is a nice change from the same old brick everywhere...although the colors chosen are not the best. I think more muted colors would make it look nicer and all the same color, or colors that compliment each other, without the wood on the end. Most homes in America are wood and look beautiful, but, this wood does not look well with the rest of the building. However, I would live here. After landscaping, I bet it will look nicer.
What a patched up looking monstrosity,I have never seen anything done right in this town for donkeys years, Do the councillors get backhanders for passing this GARBAGE,
not bad but would rather see old mills converted into apartments like urban splash have done in Mancs etc and Liverpool dock buildings conversions look better than new builds to be honest!
