Re: Re: Smithfield Market – what’s the verdict?
Wern’t they going for 23 storeys at first? As far as l remember it was taken down in height not because a high building was deemed innapropriate for the area but because the chimney was already the established landmark of Smithfield and it would have been taller than that.
Not sure whether it was 23 storeys or not but yeah, it was turned down because it would have detracted from the tower. There’s a story that’s related to the tower and other side of the square in The Sunday Business Post on Sunday
