Your reaction to Stoke-on-Trent City Council's new civic centre design
NHS worker Adam Whittaker, aged 40, from Longton, works in Piccadilly, Hanley.
He said: "It's very impressive. It will be a great development for Hanley, and in a part that needs it. I hope it will bring more footfall to the bottom of the city centre, and businesses will start to reappear where they have closed down."
Luke Stanyer, aged 25, from Kidsgrove, also works for the NHS sexual health team in Piccadilly.
He said: "The development will attract people from other areas and hopefully we will be able to compete with some of the big cities. The design of the building is great for the time being, but I think it could look dated in a few years.

Graham Barrett, aged 61, from Stoke, is part of group Save Our Stoke.
He said: "Once they bring this monstrosity here it will kill the business in other towns. The design is rubbish. They are concentrating too much on Hanley. We are trying to save the rest of the towns."
Hanley resident Paul Breeze, aged 60, is chairman of Hanley One Residents' Association and a city councillor.
He said: "I've got mixed feelings about it. I quite like the design and I can see the pros of it, but it is costing a lot of money.
"But it is going ahead anyway so we are going to have to embrace it."
Richard Snell, aged 66, from Stoke, is also a member of Save Our Stoke.
He said: "This is a shambles for all kinds of reasons. They are borrowing all this money for these buildings when they are making cuts everywhere. The design is inappropriate – it looks like it is made of plastic. It doesn't look like a government office, it looks like a nursery."
