Really starting to take shape now. Incredible design, it'll be absolutely breathtaking when completed.

Can't wait to see some of the images of the facade being installed, never have quite worked out the visual mock-up... looks very intricate.

I had an opportunity to work with the facade contractor on this project... hoping I made the right decision to pass on it!!

Glen

i'm really concerned about the cladding. hopefully it ends up looking smoother than this. because this isn't the final cladding, right? if this is truly it, i'm afraid this building's going to be a complete disaster.

Well, definitely not the sort of building you see everyday. Unlike the usual "phallic" tower, it not only has the long part but the round bits as well. I'm not trying to unduly ridicule this building, but really, hasn't anyone else noticed that before?

I think we need some clearer pictures... Or to see the cladding at different intervals during the day, with varying light conditions... It is somewhat unimpressive as it is right now, and I agree with you, if this is the finished product it is quite concerning as is.

The renders and mock up looked absolutely stunning... Granted it is not yet fully complete, but how can this be so cheap looking? - G

yeah, i was really excited about this building, but now i'm not so sure anymore. i guess we'll just have to wait and see, it might look nice after all.
