Richard Murphy's Edinburgh hotel blocked


Sad really that it should come to this, a combination of the developer paying too much for the site and the consequent over development and the wrong choice of architect, operating outwith his comfort zone. The building was a horror admittedly but the response from the heritage police and UNESCO apologists purile.
