The thing is Belfast is not Cannes or Monte Carlo, the sun shines about 4 days a year. What are we trying to achieve here, with Titantic Quarter etc it does look a bit much. The dark red brick looks well in a dull dark rainy city. i will take the glass tower, looks nice I wonder how tall it is. 40-50 storeys oh dear the flight path not allowed back to the drawing board!!!!!!Well, what do I see here: shedfuls of that ubiquitous random panelling stuff accompanied of course by a de rigeur glass tower block. If you like this stuff, it'll no doubt make you feel nostalgic for the Pre-October-08-Crash era. They were doing this 10/15 years ago in Leeds. I'm not personally familiar with local architect's names, but it has all the hallmarks of yet another masterplan by a Fly-be architect. I'm I in Belfast or Jebel Ali
I've always thought this area would be great for a large museum- possibly showing belfast's, and ni's, industrial past. It could front onto dunbar link opposite st annes square, and liven that whole area up. you could also have a rapid transport scheme running from the ulster museum to this new one and on to the titanic one- which would certainly be good for tourists at least.What if Translink were to build a new huge 'central station' at the back of the GPO. Would it not be the most Central position for a station.
