:o I don't think any east european country would allow this build design anymore.
Should we blame the developers for asking for such buildings OR the planners for allowing them?

I'd blame the planners because they don't have a clue about good design. When brilliant projects come their way, they all turn their backs on it, but when this came along.... well you all know the outcome. :mad: :(

:mad: Agreed, you could not blame developers for trying to maximize profits but planners should take the long term good of the city into account...NOT the case with the "Only Fools and Horses" Peckem Towers stage 1& 2

i just wanted to say on this thread that im really sick of these small minded people going on about putting a cap on building heights to 3 storys! This is a ridiculous theory and they should really come to there senses and realise that they are living in a CITY and these developments are inevitable and a city which is currently under a building boom and that in most cases the land prices wont make developments under 3 storeys viable and anyway where suited high rise buildings make a city more attractive and feel more like a city and if there going to proceed with there small minded theorys in which they dont like development really, cause thats what it comes down to, why dont they shag off and move to the country or evan to a town somewhere where their theorys will have some meaning! Are these people for real really!?
