Yeah I think its a bit dissapointing how uninspiring the whole Docklands scheme is although it is quite a pleasant area from ground level. There are plenty of good elements in the completed schemes but a bit more height and variety of would have been welcome. The diagram with the IT article highlights this very starkly I thought.. I think the new tower at the Point Village (note to architects: can we please move away from these dreadful generic names for schemes) should go higher. Interesting that the original height was set by the then Minister of Environment (Dempsey). Might answer your question Morlan. Its astounding how much intereference from national politicians there is in the planning process. Like he had nothing better to be getting on with!
