Nice cladding for the podium. This tower will be one of those understated ones that remain beautiful with time. Those ultra-modern and twisting towers will look dated some years from now.

The photos on Extell's website show how these wavy pieces will create the "diamond" look of the facade.

Man, why can't people take good pictures of the progress here?

This is definitely one of the most exciting buildings going up in the city.

Dramatic color effect... ...as if it was already 20.12.2012.

Anyway, there'll be enough time to complete the structure of this tower til then.
And the facade will turn out nicelly, especially with this 3d-weave pattern above the podium.
