I don't like the big wall created by Mclaren and the tallest of the first phase. Other than that, option 3 would have been nice.

I already thought that BlackCA, It seems to be a barrier for Aston Uni if you ask me, the height it great but I think it has the same issue the student halls at the old fire station would have had

Option 3

Blocks 1 and 2 are 31 and 20/15 storeys respectively. There is no Block 3.
This option was suggested by CABE (point 12) in an attempt to admit more daylight into the first floor landscaped garden.

It is beyond doubt that this option does administer more sunlight into the garden than any other.

However, current height parameters prevents Blocks 1 and 2 from accommodating the necessary quantum of development necessary to meet the brief.

Also, the lack of accommodation on the podium to the south and west gives rise to a very unsatisfactory architectural proposition.

Option 4

Blocks 1, 2 and 3 are 25, 14 and 7 storeys respectively.

This option is similar to Option 1 but Block 3 has 3 storeys less, while Blocks 1 and 2 have an additional 1 and 2 storeys respectively. This option addresses CABE point 12.

Interestingly, one of CABE’s concerns is the overshadowing of the first floor
landscaped garden.

This option administers more sunlight into the garden spaces compared to Options 1 and 2.

The massing of Option 4 is architecturally more appealing than the other options.

-----

Option 4 is what we seem to be getting.

Where is this from exactly?

Edit... it was in the D&A as a response to CABE in the 16 storey application....

Wait I've just noticed this is the options for the massing of phase one, I take it this is from the phase one planning app, I'm not sure what to believe to be honest, but I'm sticking with 16fl building, if it turns out to be the tower it'll just be a bonus!

I don't understand how it's confusing. It's explained about 3 pages back the situation.
