Reply To: Has anyone a picture of the George’s Quay tower?
Is the height of 60.8 meters (i.e., taller than liberty hall) the original height or the revised height?
There is such a ridiculous desire by the corporation to chop stories off buildings before granting permission. I suspect that if permission were sought for a 30 storey tower in the docks it would be granted eventually for a 28 storey one – even though the reduction in impact would be next to nothing. The central bank is an old example of the futility of this; it has a huge visual impact on its neighbourhood, and if it had been built to its original 180 feet instead of the 140-odd it is it would have had just the same impact, and probably would have looked better to boot.
