  1. Don’t understand why a 14 stores building is needed they are more expensive to maintain ,full of stale air adding to absences of staff whiich taxpayers don’t really need and ruin the view .nice of the Chinese to do the project but a more greener, cleaner visually appealing design could of been used ,the shorter building look better.
