This is the substitute scheme for the West London Magistrates Court site.
It is very ugly, far too tall, too dense and with awkward masses which do not sit harmoniously with each other. This assembly of buildings will be a blot on the landscape of the eastern side of the Hammersmith gyratory system.
The Hammersmith Society has lamented the lack of an adopted Plan for the "Hammersmith City Centre". I agree. This monstrosity is the result.
Will it actually be built? Maybe. I hope that, if it is, the height is significantly cut: in half would be about right.
