But i realized something...

Now that the "annoying building" is removed, the tower has been scarred for ever, you know why ? because the main entrance was built in a position that it wouldnt be in front of the "annoying building" now that its gone, the entrance is way to the left instead of being symmetrical and in a "correct" position in relation to the main tower....

thats not true, the entrance is built so that it is symmetrical to the clock tower. thats why it is on one side,
it has nothing to do with the "Annoying Building".

you can almost see it in this picture below, you can see that the clock tower isn't actually facing the middle of the two towers infront.
