West Bar Block 10, Sheffield

Not got an official name for this, but I really wanted to show it off!

It's a stunning design, but I really wish it was taller.

I do really like this in terms of shape, design and location, I just hope the materials are good enough! It looks like it could end up a bit grey.

8/10

They've cut it short cause it was starting to poke up behind the cathedral. I'm not sure whether I think it's a valid reason, but I can see where they're coming from.

At 100m,

Still not keen on it being one of them 'wide' towers, but can't fault everything else. 8/10

I know the similar tower block. Clarion hotel. I like such groups of buildings.
