While there are plenty of positives to these proposals, I think the fact that the viewpoints for some of those renders have been very carefully selected seems pretty telling to me.
The views I would want to see would be from immediately outside the Top Shop door, not most of the way back to St Andrews Square, and from directly by the corner of Waverley Bridge and Princes Street, not from nearly the Scott Monument.
This one made me chuckle though.
Just how tall is the photographer that took that picture then?
