Alexandria Letter: Architectural Possibilities

Letter to the Editor

To the Editor:

Now that the northern waterfront location and the old Mirant coal plant site are now open for discussion, I feel the need to reiterate this sentiment:

It is a great mistake to insist on architecturally uniform brick facades for Alexandria. Great cities allow their architects to soar. Cities need to put architects to use, and tap that talent. Stylistic dictatorship only leads to the dull and mundane.

A city with a beautiful port such as ours should make the most of it and not stifle creativity.
