Yes, I can understand why the City Council would not want a building with too radical a design. Remember, buildings should have some sort of architectural harmony with the surrounding buildings. I don't mean to say they have to mimic the nearby buildings, but they should not stick out as an eyesore, either.
I made mention of dear friends from Barnesley, well - they are coming to visit me here in Philadelphia next month! What could I possible show them ... Independence Hall, the Betsy Ross House, the Liberty Bell???? These things are meaningless unless you're American. Anyway, even the green rolling hills of our countryside and the quaint villages like New Hope and Doylestown - pretty as they are - aren't as lovely as Yorkshire. Maybe we'll head out to the Jersey shore and check out the casinos in Atlantic City

wow this one's really quick, this will look really massive compared with the surrounding buildings. I like the sleekness of the building, not ott but at the same time some thought and consideration's been give into the design.

I don't like it, because it looks too much like a commieblock. Sheffield deserves something better as a landmark.

someone has said that once before. it doesnt look like a UK commie block therefore i cant agree with you.

after all the UK doesnt really have any commieblocks, it just has the occasional block of flats that look like this:
