Reply To: Ugly buildings
no slagging going on here just open discussion, i just take offence to the attitude that a functioning public space should be destroyed by a few suits’ phobia of the real world. I dont know if the central bank owns that land but im sure a provision of planning permission was the public space. now they have their building built they take away the part that gave back to the city. it shouldnt be allowed.
i realise there are issues of insurance etc. but this isnt the only place in the world where there are an open flight of stairs, im sure that wasnt the primary reason, as usual i susspect that was greed, laziness and ignorance.
