Great news....hopefully this can proceed apace. Its a little bitter sweet for me....when I was in DIT back in 2001 they were talking about this project be ready to proceed, indeed I'd been reading about it since the late 1990s. Of course it wasn't to be, but just think, this could have self financed if DIT had sold their existing buildings at the height of the boom. That the didn't is a reflection of just how inefficient and "political" DIT is as an instution!
On the decision itself......well quelle surprize....ABP allow a huge scheme to sail through but selectively subtract ALL the elements that could be termed highrise. Anybody who tries to maintain that they don't have a certain agenda is deluded!
