If you stand outside the Jervis Centre or M&S and face Roches, it looks like it has just arrived from outer space, a mammoth bulky cumbersome lump, dazzling white, crashing down onto Henry St – crushing all of the original streetscape on it’s site.

Of course they’re only trying to make it look better – badly – but there is no way on the face of this planet, not even the planet it came from, would such a structure get planning permission today.

Its intrusion onto the streetscape is barely concievible in it’s arrogance, we so often pass it unheeding as it has so long been mere wallpaper, but this ‘facelift’, and seen from the west is makes it absolutely monstrous in scale.
