Because this isn't HongKong! SE1 has a village feel to it that I love - and main reason I moved here 10 years ago. If we start introducing this type of building hapzardly scattered around the area, it stops making sense as a whole.
In any case, the building itself is in my opinion unattractive, un-interesting architecturally and will probably look horrific after 5 years when nobody has maintained the external glass pannelling. Am also assuming this is going to be a council-building so maintenance is not really on top of agenda from what I've seen... Reminds me of the cheap horror that has been built on Tabard Square.
