Its got nothing to do with stupid planning laws. There's hundreds of thousands of units with planning in London.

I was very studiously making no comment on whose fault it is or how it should be fixed, just wanted to keep it to the raw numbers for this thread. There's a housing crisis thread for all those debates.

Those floral "ornaments" at the bottom side of the balconies are a neat detail. The careful brickwork looks good, too. It's the small things that really make a good and liveable building. Developers in general need more love for the detail to please people.

Yeah, it's funny, just yesterday I was moaning in the london forum how architects/developers never seem to bother with ornamental details like a row of slightly different brickwork above each window... and today here we are with a proposal doing exactly that.

Westminster council in their infinite wisdom thought it a good idea to approve this.

There's a petition set up to oppose it. Hopefully it might get the application called in.

@the demolitions/Old Law Building: What the heck are they thinking? These "excuses" are completely hollow. These buildings can and should be seperately used. It's frightening to see how various London developers aren't a tiny bit interested in "old town"-like structures. Building mergers should be an absolute exception, not the rule (like 7 facades, but only 1 building, WTF?).
It should be single dedicated owners in such cases, otherwise London turns into a mere facadist coulisse, some sort of soulless Potemkin village. Such buildings need to be saved and need to be kept alive in their small unit separation. It's perfectly possible and makes a thriving diverse place, many old towns in the world prove it.
