The last construction update - I take it that's Federation Tower in the background? Can't wait for it this thing to rise, or even more so for the first glass to go up.
Why not?

I remember a 600ft bright yellow skyscraper proposed for London a few years back... can't wait until the red cladding on this one gets built though!

Red can be nice. You do not see it that much but i think its ok.

Rotterdam is getting its own 'not so tall' red building. (127 metres)





For Moscow again this is a super project. Looks fantastic.

WOW! I love that whole "city" that Moscow is building and especially that red tower as it has a kind of unique design to it, as well as the above building in Rotterdam-is that residential because it seems to have a lot of floors for only 127 meters? By the way, is it just me or does one of the buildings in the Moscow tower area look like the Williams Tower in Houston?

New renders look awsome! It really has that uniqueness now that its in red. You really don't get to see many buildings of that sort.

Nice building for Moscow. I think the one in Rotterdam would look even better if the red colums were staight.

First time I saw the buiding I thought it was a huge tower but it's clearly visible that there are four towers in the complex

Yes, the Rotterdam tower will be residential.

not bad of a design now that i got to see some detailed image. i just the red won't be so intense that u'd end up seeing green everywhere after gazing at this tower for a long time.
