Comment on: Amanda Levete reveals east London tower plans
The tower is completely out of scale with the existing urban fabric, over-shadowing a neighbourhood that is extremely complex, rich and diverse. The developer has decided cynically to locate all of the requisite affordable units to a remote site, designed by Peter Barber Architects on Fleet Street Hill, so that the 25-storeys will be exclusively luxury flats. It would be completely alter for the worse a very exciting and vibrant neighbourhood if the proposal is accepted by the planning committee in the summer.
