Though there is potential to fit more space, if not quite match the existing floor area of the tower, on the site as a whole if one includes the theatre.
What would be the practical implications of knocking Liberty Hall and building another tower in its place?
Would the precendent set be factored into consideration by DCC? If it went to appeal (very likely methinks), how would APB view the proposal, not least it being next to the Custom House?
Would they evaluate the scheme entirely objectively, or factor in the precedent?
An 'interesting' state of affairs would arise to say the least if a building that would never in a million years get planning permission today if proposed for the first time on this site were to sail through the process on such grounds.
