Letter: Waterfront's ugly sisters.

Byline: John H. Luxton

`AWESOME', `Amazing' - two words used by the Liverpool ECHO recently to describe plans for the socalled ``Fourth Grace''.

I wonder how many people think as I do that the word ``awful'' would be more appropriate for all four designs?

With the removal of the scruffy bus station complex a decade ago and the tidying of the Pier Head area we have a first class waterfront. However, the developers now appear to want to ruin it with a canal and a building complex which is totally out of scale with the beautiful buildings around it.

I am not averse to modern architecture, but what ever is constructed on the waterfront should be of a similar size and scale to that of the present waterfront buildings. All four proposals are ugly. Some appear to threaten part of the Maritime Museum quaysides around the Canning Graving Docks and the former Great Western Railway Goods Depot.

Why do we have to loose this small area of preserved dockland to these ugly monstrosities?
