going down (and up)

24 March 2004

Portsmouth City Council said the decision [not to make the tricorn centre a listed buildng] cleared the way for the site to be demolished for a new shopping complex planned.

they are beginning the ten month task of razing portsmouth’s notoriously hideous tricorn centre today. but they’re going to replace it with a new shopping complex? will they do any better this time around? i wonder what we’ll think in forty years time.
