normally i do not bump threads like that, but it is an amazing design in a city i have visited before and of course i also immediatly added the building to the SSP database, although without much information yet. would be cool to see where the building is located within the city.

totally forgot about that one . i prefer a better contrast for the clock tower though. the face of the clock doesn't look that much integrated into the design.

I hope it will be a nice stone cladding and not that usual tan-coloured postmodernist cladding. The cladding will make or break it.

finally some updates, one of my favorite towers in the city currently and probably one of my favorites in the under supertall range aswell really like the design and hope the finished product will look like the renders in the end for that matter.

Nice share. Seems like they are going to be pretty nice when finished.

Very tasteful, but not quite daring. I like it

Boxy, but still very neat design.

Not sure how it will fit in the skyline (what's the point of a clock tower if it is to be blocked by taller buildings), but it will look nice
