Quite nice, although a little bit of architectural mystique would have put he cream on the cake. A touch on the bland side. just a touch.

The last render of Granite Tower reminds me to some designs made by Cesar Pelli.

I like them and am going to call them "A victory for Europe". Well if Chirac can do it when we win the rugby world cup then I can do it now

Here's a little London friendliness.

Good on you France. You really do deserve it and the towers look fanastic. Keep up the good work and in time you'll be known for beauty and skyline.
As for Frankfurt, well done. You guys made a nice move in making a well distinguished skyline in Europe. You should be proud.
London, we need to move from the boxyness in Canary Wharf but it's not at all too bad. The city of London looks good when all the projects go up, especially London Bridge Tower.

Remember competition is healthy. It's a race for no.1 skyline between
France - La Defense
Frankfurt - Mainhattan (because the river is call Main)
Moscow - Diamond Towers
London - Canary Wharf
London - City of London cluster
(Bearing in mind London has two clusters)

Once again France, well done. Nice elegant towers.
