Just how much importance do you place on height?

Which bit are we voting on, the 'orrible Concreat stuff or the Ghastly neo-Stalinist block behind it?

its too long, if it was just a tower it'd look much better. rents are cheap in there though if you can survive the 2 year waiting list..

It is a horrible buidling and is the personification off all that was wrong in the 1960's.

Compare it to the Nottingham Victoria that stood there before along with the Great Central Railway before both were demolished by the short sited politicians of the 1960's

An awful disgusting and sickening building. Like was said before, it says everything about the 1960's, a decade of illusion. I weep enough for what was destroyed in Birmingham, yet this is equally as bad.

I would go as far to say 'How dare they!' and If I could I would make the authorities rebuild every single beautiful building they destroyed !

I will not vote on this building as it doesant deserve a 1
