The renderings make it look a lot more transparent than it actually is in real life though, I really am not a fan of this cladding they seem to use on all their towers! The one in Birmingham doesn't look too good either.

I really hope they don't intend to clad the proposed one in London like this though I think 'm going to be sadly disappointed when better renders are released.

The one in B'ham looks better from the back/side that the front IMO.

Which is rare in scrapers....usuallty the front is the best.
