A Towering Success

The Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors has awarded the 23-storey The Mill (Cranfields) their accolade of 'Project of the Year', the overall winner of their East of England awards. It also won top award for regeneration. Architect John Lyall expressed his delight. It is certainly a 'landmark' as was said. The Society's view was that it was too tall. Our members probably have mixed opinions - seen from the town centre it is either massively blank or a bold statement. Most people seem to prefer the south facing side towards the water. But when lit up at night, the northern facades of the whole complex might impress even sceptics?
