Appraisal

This building is of apparent architectural design and detail, and makes a positive addition to the quayside. The scale and form of the building is particularly notable, as it contrasts with the towering late twentieth-century block to west. The materials utilised in it's construction, such as the red brick and ashlar limestone, add colour and textural interest to the streetscape, and articulate the fa├žade of the building.
