Posting pictures of Cathedrals to counter my point of "can you think of an iconic building that isn't tall" (that's what I wrote, so please quote me correctly) purposely ignores the context, or at least I hope it does. That would be the equivalent of posting pictures of American yellow school buses if I asked if anyone has seen an iconic car that isn't slim....when we're talking about a fast car that is being manufactured.

I looked hard, but I couldn't see your response to my last post. I guess that was supposed to be smart, as opposed to on topic.

I don't know if any of you guys remember what the project looked like, we seem to have lost the renders.

but this is what the project looks like right now. Still no work done, but they have put some covering over it.

I was wrong this is not Centre Point - it's the Old Nitel Building.

And was recently demolished
