Looking good, not too long before we start to see the frame popping above the roofline of the area.

It is coming along well. It does look boxy from the side and someone could easily be fooled into tihnking it was one of them 1960's things but from the front its great. I can't wait to see it shoot up out the ground.

is it me or is the diagonal bracing of the building not following the rendering?

in fact its facing the opposite direction....its rather confusing.

i love the tower though. i cant wait till it starts rising above the skyline

Somone tell the builders....QUICK, they are reading the building instructions wrong....

Just like when you make somtime out of Lego....or that damn Flatpack furniture........it all seems good when you begin, but if somthing is slightly misplaced a few stages down the line it all ****s up and you can't make head nor tail of anything.
