^ The classical building was there before, right?

The top would integrate better with the rest, if it was also clad in stone, and with an additional setback. Otherwise it looks great, even the glassy pavillon.

The cladding looks very good. Perhaps darker than I expected but that probably has to do with the light.

Most cities have a good amount of infill then build some tall buildings to cap off the skyline. London is building an entire skyline full of unique towers and thats really hard to pull off. Having every building trying to stand out and be unique can cause a lot of clashing, I hope it works out for them.
