Heres a couple of shots of the hole, apart from the core the rest is still to rise.

2 to 3 storeys to go until the core is topped out. Looks really imposing when driving past it.

Why can't Leicester attract companies that can afford to build their own offices?

It's still down in the bottom of the hole! See my pics from a few posts back that I took a few weeks ago.

The core is fully topped out now. All of the formwork has been taken down. The floors shouldn't take too long to rise once they get above ground.

Centre of the map is where the photo was taken. There's public access to it near Boundary Road.

Looking good
isnt the building going to be slight taller once complete? as on the renders, it shows a slim glass part with the sign 'eon' on, because by the looks of the core, it stops just below that part

does anyone understand what i mean?

but cant wait till more of the framework begins, its gonna be a nice addition to the skyline
