Bolton Street, should use their immersion in gritty urbanism to their advantage instead of following UCD into starchitect gazing.

There might be token zany shapes, but is this not 1970s planning?

Do we want Church Street to go underground at Constitution Hill?
Is there someone out there who thinks tunnel portals are not one of the most damaging things you can put in an urban context?
Do we need more grass in the city centre?

All of this stuff has been tried before and it’s incredibly destructive of real urbanism. We need to learn how to mend the city, not replace it with Sandyford.

I don’t want to be discouraging.
