Totally agree. Urban identities, characters are much more than a sentimental value, they are a main indicator for quality of life - probably the main factor that draws people to a place in the future. Character is a (or the) main factor when we look for someone in our life, wife/husband, friends - it's the same with cities. If cities eradicate their past and character, they eradicate a large portion of their quality factors.

I have to agree with the comments above, the marble tower project is a very bland design, which is a shame, given the location.
