The current building regulations on environmental issues such as energy conservation are now very stringent, so if it complies with them (which of coourse it will have to) it sounds good to me.

I wondered how far away Criterion and La Lumiere were from each other... thing is 4 skyscrapers in a cluster would make quite an impact.

If these 4 towers get built, Leeds will have an amazing skyline - one of the best in Europe.

Lumiere will be in the space above the 'www.' (top left), and Criterion is located to the left of the 'www.' (bottom right).

This actual application quotes Northern st which may mean location would be nearer wellington place?

Linfoot and ISA have been working on this for nigh on two years with close co-operation from LCC, so if this doesn't get pp i'll be flabbergasted.

pp is anticipated in the autumn with all set for GO on site in early 2007.

remarkable.

The application says it's where we know it's going to go - right on the space between the old Wellesey Hotel & West Point. Northern Street connects Wellington Street & Whitehall Road - West Point to the left, Aireside estate to the right:

Dom, La Lumiere and Criterion Place are not very far apart on the skyline- 1km? If that. In terms of the skyline view, Bridgewater Place will also be inbetween as well as possibly a Highfields skyscraper- there will be a good number of tall buildings on each side of the core cluster bounded by La Lumiere and Criterion to tone it down, such as the 20-40 storey towers on the fringes. In other words, however things go, in 5 years Leeds will have an awesome skyline Not that its not already!

Really it should have been done when they rebuilt the station. However I suppose they didn't account for the unprecedented development in the extension of the city centre towards the south.

Are you talking about the news a month or so back that they were considering adding a pedestrian entrance to the station on the Bridgewater side of the viaduct? It just seemed like an idea to me so I reckon it'll be some way off before any work gets underway.

I think it was a solid plan in its very early stages. I think it will develop and come to frutition but construction won't start for at least another 2 years I would think. However, it doesnt matter too much- if people are organised Im sure they can manage to fit in time to walk under the station from the New Station Street entrance. They've managed for 40 years; Im sure they can manage a few more!

Bottom line: would be nice, not vital, probably happen eventually.
