Fantastic pics! It's time London started building it's planned towers of these heights too! Eureka will be awesome when it's finished.

Great height but I think it's a bit weird looking.

A truly original idea is uncomfortable.

Not much going on construction-wise due to Christmas shutdown - but if I don't post these, Muse will probably have to repost them from the local forum

Nice pics, this is a favourite tower of mine. Love the design, cladding and height.

I really don't think it's truly original. There are plenty more original scrapers. I think it looks good from the view that shows it's width however the side view that shows the thin top looks really ugly imo.

I don't look at it as a residential tower I look at it as a skyscraper and there are plenty more 'truly' original. Truly is the key word there. It's an original tower alright but truly? Nah.

In REALITY though, it is a RESIDENTIAL TOWER, so in essence, it is a truly original apartment tower....dont take the word truly out of its context.

Not original? I've never seen a tower with soo many balconies and a huge gold chunk 300m up!

Yes, in the "lower floors". The space between the highest part and the side wings are ocuppied, in the facade, by balconies.
