George R.R. Martin can't build castle library in New Mexico
SANTA FE, N.M. – “Game of Thrones” author George R.R. Martin won't be able to build a seven-sided, castle-style library at his compound in Santa Fe that drew objections from neighbors. The city's Historic Districts Review Board on Tuesday denied a request to allow Martin to exceed the building height limit in the historic district where he lives, the Santa Fe New Mexican reported. “It is a medieval castle, and I don’t understand how we could possibly approve it in this style,” board member Frank Katz said. “The fact remains that the proposed building is still a prominent castle in the middle of a residential neighborhood in Santa Fe,” the letter said.
