Reply To: Cathedrals of Commerce
I think the building on the old Shell garage site looks very good. Good materials good proportion and fits very well with the buildings it surrounds. The lower height beside the Odeon is sympathetic and the shrubs on the terrace give it a very civilised feel.
It glorifies commerce without making an un-necessary intrusion into whats left of the setting.
Different docklands sites would afford greater heights without being intrusive onto historic streetscapes.
