and the likes of Frank McDonald and other supposedly enlightened commentators have attacked every attempt to build high rise in the area.

Actually you’re totally wrong there about Frank McD because he has persistently criticised the low-rise nature of the IFSC extension, Citibank, etc. & pointed out the broader expanse of the river there could have taken much higher buildings. He also names the DDDA oficial (who has now moved on) responsible for laying down and enforcing the strict height guidelines.

Have you seen the plans for the Spencer Dock site, the last big site you refer to? Its appropriatness of scale & urban qualities are a big improvement on the hitherto north docklands development.
