I'm disappointed that they'll be defacing another part of the admirable Broadgate Estate. However at least it'll be getting some more usage out of it.

Oh no. That 3 Broadgate proposal is the worst.

The existing building is absolutely gorgeous. It is vandalism to replace a beautiful, rock solid, elegant building with a foil clad Spongebob squarepants house of a thing.

Broadgate are determined to ruin everything decent on that estate which has the possibility of being listed in the future.

Well everyone has their own beauty perspective though.
But imo above 3 Broadgate proposal is gorgeous than original.

Yes I admit that old 3 Broadgate's red color(rock solid) look great harmony with nearby building's clad color and look vintage&warm.
But new proposal luxury cladding more eye catching. Moreover I dislike old 3 Broadgate's dark glass window.
New proposal 3 Broadgate look like a jewelry!!!

BTW respect other opinions too.

Mr Cladding, are you in denial about the 22 Bishopsgate redesign? It doesn't have a stepped top anymore and it's floors shorter. Yes, it's depressing but we all need to come to terms with it.

I was never in denial about the aforementioned scheme, the developers instructed PLP to put forward a building which meet there specification and that's what they've done.

The flat topped design was withdrawn after Mayor Sadiq Khan criticised it for not contributing to the skyline. The developers sensed it would not get his final signoff, so they reverted to the stepped design at 278m that already had planning permission. Mr Cladding's post is therefore correct.

The redesign was dismissed months ago. It's the taller version going ahead.

McAlpine set for £29m Big Ben overhaul

http://www.constructionenquirer.com/...-ben-overhaul/

Quote:
The Government is set to award Sir Robert McAlpine the prestigious contract to restore the Big Ben tower at the Palace of Westminster despite the on-going row over plans to silence the famous bell for four years.

McAlpine’s special projects division picked up the £3.5m enabling works contract around nine months ago and is set to be confirmed for the overall Elizabeth House when MPs return in early September.

The bell of the famous clock will fall silent for four years to protect workers’ hearing during the restoration of the 96m tall Elizabeth Tower, the Great Clock and the Great Bell.
