Re: Re: South Great George’s Street
That is the development’s more flattering form post-alteration. The original concept was truly hideous.
Such unmitigated arrogance. As for the infill to the side…
At least DCC requested that a fifth floor be omitted (even the throwaway design of it indicated they were just trying it on), and the ‘pavilion’ fourth storey be set back by 1.8 metres and continued over the infill block (in itself replacing a three storey 19th century building).
The revised proposal’s sun screen is still too clunky, and the storey needs to be set back more still.
I’m still not pushed on these top-up storeys, but the linear nature of this building can certainly take it better than its Thomas Street colleague.
