Did you read the way that the Pierse proposal was ruled out so the competition could be relaunched?
Councillors were reluctant to vote on either accepting or rejecting the Pierce Group plan.
Instead, a motion was passed that Pierce Group be excluded from further consideration in the competition based on height, use, scale and provision of parking, thus effectively ending the competition.
The use of a building’s height to rule against it, without even mentioning its architectural quality, is so deeply ingrained in this city’s psyche it’s maddening.
