I've only seen the brum one and I really dont like it, the back looks awful and the top overhanging section ruins what could have been a nice tower.

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.
poppcock , the cladding is superb and very differnt

from the pics of HCT i have to say that i thik that the cladding really lets it down, as i think it could have been a really nice tower. I dont believe that beetham's facade is that similar to HCT, and i must say that the claddign looks a lot better 'in the flesh' than it does on these photos.

cant wait for this to be finished, and then eastage, albany and hopefully 1 hardman square to begin shortly

I think that both the towers (Beetham manchester & Holloway circus)
Are great!

Does anyone have more new pics?
