Suits you, not!

I notice a short story in Estates Gazette informing us that a planning application has been made in respect of a large office building in London's home of quality tailors, Savile Row. The proposals would replace an imposing existing building, and would be developed by Legal & General with Stanhope, and designed by Eric Parry. The interesting thing about the proposals is that it replaces Fortress House, home of English Heritage! EH is said to be less than thrilled by the idea of a development getting permission without its prior support, so no doubt Sir Neil Cossons will be having a word with Stanhope and CABE chief Sir Stuart Lipton to sort out any misunderstanding.Will the scheme go to CABE's design review committee for a comment, one wonders? Perhaps not; the existing building is unlisted.
