I've just realised that effect is only on the side facing the Hyatt.

Also the basket effect on the rear. I think once more cladding appears it's going to look quite smart, the balconies are going to be a wonderful feature of this building too.

Looking at JPD's first pic it'd be well thought out if the design of the building directly behind the old bank had some vertical features in line with the pillars.

something like this would've worked, but it is going to be the one with the diamond shaped windows, which probably won't work so well.

View of 1 Centenary Square (aka 2 Arena Central) from the Secret Garden (at the Library of Birmingham).

An Ainscough mobile crane was on the site to the right.

Did you get a close up of the cladding that's going up at the far end of the side facing Hyatt?

It is in view, you can make it out in the first picture, just to the left of the crane you got a close up of.

Tried to get a few of the cladding on that side. Zoomed in with my phone so quality isn't the best.
