The building in the foreground was recently finished.
Walking by today, I was pleased to see that it will soon be possible to walk along the river behind it.
Those who have windows and balconies facing west will have a nice view overlooking the river. (On the other side of the water, up on the hill, is an old cemetery. So no high buildings there.)
Looking east, the view won’t be too bad either – at least not when you get up a few floors from street level (it’s a rather busy street).
I’m not so sure about the view for those in the new building with balconies looking south, though. Or those in the bottom half of high building to the left, facing north… They’ll almost be able to shake hands with each other from the balconies.
This is they way they are building now in several places in/near the town centre, though. ‘Urban densification’ is the new keyword; rather than extending the suburbs.
