Ncie tower
Very sleek, and I like the look of that concrete square thing, finishes it off VERY nicely

Yea but it seems kinda weird that the person in the building next to you should stick to other rules than you...anyway it's off topic.

Demolition a part of old building


Render on the fence.

Woah, once this is built it will make a hefty cluster with the Etihad Tower complex.

Thanks for updating this thread. Hopefully this project is not going to dwarf the Etihad towers. I kinda have the feeling that this project might have a somewhat negative effect on the Etihad project. I like the Etihad towers standing on their own, having much space surrounding them.
