Verde building just about completed now. Blends in quite well I think.

I had my doubts originally but I think it looks o.k. Anyway, better than the 1960's warehouse which used to be stuck on at the end of the Boswell wing. But I suppose it always comes down to a subjective opinion.

Just found this thread by accident and thought I'd post an update on how the place looks now. I guess it's a matter of opinion on how you think the building has blended into the landscape - but I can say that the views over the city from the window as the sun sets are awesome! :P

That was the day West opened. We were about the first customers.

"Lazer Quest" used to be nuts in that place. F*ck the wimpy light gun, hit him with the cricket bat!

It did actually feel like you're life was on the line, if you had a bunch of arsehole neds as opponents. I took a cricket bat to the back of the shoulders, my wee mate got the shit kicked out of him in one of those maze things. Crazy. My wee bro ran into a see-thru wall and broke his nose. Absolutely crazy days.
