Agreed it gives the vista from the Ha’penny up Crown Alley a very International flavour.
What caused chaos was the creation of a Plaza on Dame Street and the destruction of the streetline and stunning buildings that were demolished to make way for it.
Had it been built in the backland even deeper than its present position and the Dame Street line kept intact then I may have had a different opinion as that site is very very deep in comparison.
The Clarence site in contrast is only a slip of a plot with no real depth and the Quays are infinately more exposed to long views than Fownes Street and Cope Street
