Yesterday, while searching for something else, I stumbled upon a video on YouTube I don’t remember seeing before. It dates from July 2009 and shows the plan — thankfully never realised — for a new council headquarters facing onto Peasholme Green, on the edge of the Hungate regeneration area.
A lot can change in five years. Now on that site the Hiscox building is taking shape, and it seems it might be rather more curvy and attractive than the proposed council building. The council, of course, ended up in a remodelled and refurbished West Offices.
Which I think is probably a better outcome, all things considered?
