How constructive... many people agree that this is not a very nice tower but if that's all you have to say you can better just shut up entirely.

Yes and that is a problem because the old tower has a lighter and IMO better white colour, which makes this one look cheap from the start.
The vertical profile is being undone by the small size of the windows, which form horizontal lines, especially when seen from a distance.
To counter this, the windows should have been bigger and from floor to ceiling.
