Who are the strange 4% of people who went to the bother of answering the website's poll on tall buildings but ticked Don't Know? It's like going into a restaurant and saying I'm not hungry, I'll just have a glass of water? Don't get me wrong, I like it - if you don't have an opinion, stand up and shout it from the rooftops!
Possibly someone who followed something similar to my thought process
Yes ... BUT ONLY IF...
(i) they don't block vistas of the sky/river from major SE1 streets
(ii) they don't dominate public buildings in SE1 (as the proposed Tate tower does)
(iii) they don't cast local open spaces into shadow for much of the day
(iv) they have active frontages at ground level
(v) they don't reduce the tightly-knit permeability of local pedestrian routes
(vi) the design has been fully wind-tunnel tested to minimise down-draughts in the adjacent streets
(vii) they don't harm the views of St Paul's and Westminster from RIchmond, Parliament Hill and Primrose Hill,
(viii) they don't harm other local views of St Pauls and the city skyline from the Crystal Palace/Sydenham ridge
(ix) they are of a very high standard of architectural design (and not just done by the junior staff of a big name architect's practice)
(x) they will be built to the original architect's vision and not dumbed down by the developer
... which all seemed so implausible that I ended up voting No!
