Will the various organisations concerned with tall buildings get together to discuss issues raised by Renzo Piano's tower for London Bridge Station? CABE is urging just such a discussion, partly to avoid the confrontation which a call-in would almost inevitably imply. It is difficult to avoid the conclusion that if the Heron Tower deserved to be called in, then so should Piano's.
On the other hand, were CABE, English Heritage, Southwark, the GLA etc to find common cause over the proposal, then perhaps a way forward could be negotiated rather than fought out. Watch this space.
