Pardon the profanity, but they're putting up some f*cking banner at The Modern site. I asked the guy if it's for the building that's going up soon, and he said "yes".

I'm not excited just yet, but OMFGCantDealsCouldThisBeTheOfficialLaunch?!!



I'll be sure to share progress right here!

This is going to be the most photographed construction since Cape Town Stadium

21 pages into the thread and we've finally got to the point of a banner on the corner of the site. What will the page count be by the time it's completed I wonder.

I think the banner might be related to the filming of The Maze Runner 3. There were guys on site today busy inside the building, quite a few old cars parked inside and I saw a sign inside saying "The Green Zone."

Yeah, just walked past, the banner clearly has nothing to do with an impending high rise, and I received an email today about filming in the area over the weekend

I stand corrected. 21 pages into the thread and we are yet to get to the point of a (relevant) banner on the corner of the site.

It seems that the Modern's design is not that original. Personally still feel it's the wrong design to match the Heritage Building - initial designs were much more complimentary

Mate - nobody's anticipating a world first here.
We just want something that isn't blocky or rectangular¬!

The Modern's design was in development before this tower. It is also an evolution of a design that does not have much in common with this building.

Second part of your post I do agree with, however.

The original designs were absolutely horrendous.

I like the current design as well. Let's get this thing started. Also, even if this one isn't a world first, at least it's moving us away from boring rectangles and might encourage other developers to push the boundaries a bit.
