Really like the alittle more neo-classical style of that highrise on blackfriars road!

Shame it isn't higher though!

Yes, it's pretty bloody ordinary, the colours are its 'saving grace'.

The brick is too pepper-y in that last building.

Blackfriars road looks really cool, but it needs only two shades of colour on the facade - those multishaded darker bricks kinda mess it up.
Glad to see some classic architecture revival in skyscrapers anyway; can't get enough of those.

The sophisticated detail on their buildings is quite something. They get the palette of their facing brickwork just right.

It's slightly shorter than the previous proposal for the site, but far more refined.
