[quote="tim"]There is a lot of resentment from the locals, as they weren't told how big and how close the buildings were going to be nad kept in the dark until it was a done deal, basically.
That's odd - The procedure in Andermatt has been to make a mock-up building (full size) with poles and scaffolding so that its impact can be seen before permissions are given. This process was followed for the present Sporthotel Schlussel/Coop combo and for the new building across the street from the Coop. I can't help but wonder how they were able to get past that requirement.
It wouldn't surprise me to see the 21st century equivalent of the populace arising with pitchforks and torches some rainy night.
