So what are your thoughts about the design ?
Personally i think they look great and.... very glassy
From the Photos it Seems like the they are up to the 27th floor (including the ground floors where the crescat boulevard is situated), 3 more floors to go and then comes the cladding and interiors

the Monarch deisgn is alright but not spectacular. Would have loved to see a bit more glass. There need to be a change in trend in style from building being built now, to those built about a decade ago. This tower ( architecturally speaking.. judging by the exterior renders ) while being decent and tall doesnt really make out a 'statement' especially for a building being marketed as 'luxury' apartments.

The Emporor on the contrary, seems to be more interesting. But then again its not too clever to judge from designs, so lets wait and watch.

thanks for the pics

I count about 25 floors in the pic meaning only a few more to go and it will be interesting to see how the glassy viewing room ? at the top turns out. I would have wished it spanned the entire width of the building, but looking by it it only covers the lift area. Wil lbe a crampy space. And which side is it facing ? sea side ?

The Crescat area is really turning Colombo 3 into a miami beach style area. That's the way to go. However would be nice to see more companies have large HQ towers and glassy office towers like in NYC.

However I think Colombo 2 would also be an adequate place for HQ towers etc.
