People have to understand the City is an economic powerhouse and therefore it's at the hands of market speculation and their needs. The West End is the place of historical preservation.

I dont think the fact that the city is an economic powerhouse gives it the right to demolish old buildings. But here they are making a new public square which many other forumers say is what this area needs (i do not live in London but i have visited the city quite a few times ) Also judging by the renders they are cleaning up the white building which should make it more of an asset to the street and more beautiful, as shown in these pictures:

This will probably bring some life to the City at weekends.

Great new development. Just sucks that they have to demolish such a good looking historical building IMO.
