George RR Martin’s request to build a ‘castle’ library rejected

Game of Thrones author George RR Martin’s plans of building a castle-style library at his compound in Santa Fe might not materialize. According to a report the construction was objected to by his neighbours. His request to increase the height of his building has also been rejected by the city’s Historic Districts Review Board.

A reason behind this is of course the staggering fan following the author enjoys. “With the notoriety of Mr Martin and Game of Thrones, we absolutely fear that our neighbourhood will become the next treasure hunt, that his fans will be looking to find the castle that’s in the middle of Santa Fe,” Mark Graham, who as per the report resides in south of the property, was as quoted as saying. On the other hand, board member Frank Katz said, “It is a medieval castle, and I don’t understand how we could possibly approve it in this style.”

The idea was to put together “a very sizable collection” of literature and “other collectables”. However, a letter signed by 40 neighbours led to the rejection of the request. More than 40 neighbours had signed a letter urging the Historic Districts Review Board to reject the request. “The fact remains that the proposed building is still a prominent castle in the middle of a residential neighbourhood in Santa Fe,” the report quotes the letter as saying. “It WILL BE VISIBLE.”
