I think we need to be realistic here. The existing building is not unattractive but nothing special and we cannot expect these sort of structures to stand ad- infinitum. Change must happen sooner or later.
The new building is almost certainly going to be flats with commercial on the ground floor not unlike the replacement of Normans Garage on Youngs Corner.† Here the developer has realised that maximum returns will be made from the development by building something sympatric to its surrounds and that will appeal to people wanting to buy.
The problem comes in my experience when some wizz kid† architect/developer decides he/she knows best and puts up a Ďlandmarkí building which is deliberately out of keeping with the area thinking they are very clever. They are not.
Unfortunately I have had a number of first hand experiences when selling new developments where the developers havenít listened to my and others advice and got it badly wrong. In my business we have a saying; architects can kill the sale, donít let them loose!
Personally I have no problem to the building being replaced AS LONG as it reflects the character of the surrounds. Shame we canít see whatís proposed before demolition as this may put our minds at rest.
