I wasn't keen on first impressions, but I like it now.
Can't wait to see what is next!

People were telling me the box office had been repainted a horrible shade of green, but having seen it now it doesn't actually look that bad! With more colourfully painted buildings around it, it could actually look quite attractive, I think.

I think they're trying to get it to look more like in the adverts.

I agree. If they repainted and retheamed the buildings more inside then it would look great! Just look how much better Corner Coffee looks after the refurb last year!

Yep, that's the one. I think that would look great in real life :D

I wasn't too keen on the green but like Justin, I've warmed to it and it's nice to have a brighter colour :)

Wow, I can't believe every other day there seems to be another update! Really liking the green, I think having all of Towers Street freshly painted in all the bright colours with bring a new lease of life and will look so good when looking down towards the Towers in the distance. :)

Everybody it's a CBeebies extension, it's balamory. (At least that's what they seem to be going for :lol )

But in all seriousness this does seem exciting, and I love the vibrant feel of that building just from that picture, can't wait to see it in real life.

The latest TLC update shows the work on Rita's tunnel in Dark Forest. Have to say I'm not too sure about this.

The tunnel is exciting but with the rest I honestly preferred the scaffolding. Just looks so high, overpowering and unthemed. Maybe I'll grow to like it

Right, before I start I'm going to make it clear it didn't think the scaffolding looked spectacular however it did go with the whole restoration theme. This looks really out of place - and it's purely been chucked in. I hope they try to at least 'age' the wood to make it look better. There are certain thematic elements that this is seriously lacking for this area, which the scaffolding managed to rats in even with hoe it looked overall. It's still nice to see this project going on, I just think this one is a swing and miss. Of course, there may be a story too it, maybe the restoration team mysteriously came back to finish that one tunnel and the were taken back by the forest...

I'm going to go against the trend of what has been said so far when I say I think that is a massive improvement over the eyesore that was the scaffolding.

I do agree it looks a bit brash however I will reserve full judgement until I see it but I think it looks much better.

I agree Dan, it's better than the scaffolding. Hopefully they'll add some vines, make it look decrepit etc.

To me, it seems like the fences are prohibiting even more floor space available to guests in the Dark Forest.

I'll reserve my judgement for now, hopefully they at least add some plants or vines or something like that.
