Oh, how I'd love to see more retro-classic designs with setbacks.
That one is awesome too. I actually find its cloying gold lobby attractive. I'll get to see both buildings in six days and will probably visit both of their lobbies too.

For some strange reason I'll never comprehend, quite a few Londoners on this website think that The Place (smaller building near the Shard) is ugly.
It's a fantastic building that complements the Shard nicely.

(Okay, no more lowrises from me )

I agree, but size matters here. Smaller buildings are being overlooked at the forum as well.

Old worn brick that lost its vibrancy ages ago...

That new design of building is awesome.

I'm not sure if underrated or just totally underwhelming/hideous buildings not worthy of praise.

Absolutely, Chicago's skyline needed this more than anything. (Any skyline would, for that matter).

I also like how it looks in the area itself. Next to to a river, with brilliant light blue glass contrasting the jet-black glass of the Miesan classic next door, and the surrounding stone towers.
