Historic England ‘unable to support’ Hodder’s scheme for Giggs and Neville

Comment

Architecture, it could be poorly argued, is like Marmite - you either love it or hate it. This improved scheme appears now to have more people converted to it's merits than it's predecessor. Writing as a former Mancunian, familiar with the context, I neither love it or hate it, however I do take issue with the developer's description of the tower as a "unique lozenge shape’. Anyone less familiar with Walter Gropius' Panam Tower at 200 Park Avenue, New York, might be forgiven for confusing their Marmite (much loved original) with their Vegemite (later derivative). Either way I suspect it is an acquired taste, best consumed with a pint of Boddington's Original (Bitter). Chris Roche / 11.04 Architects and MCFC supporter
