Totally. People should judge it once the tower crane comes down; it's strange how much it detracts from the spire.

It has the larger spire in the pic on the inside. I wonder if they'll keep it that way.

... except for the variety of clashing colours, the spire, the lack of diagonal bracing at the top of the service tower, the transparency... but, by now we should all know that they don't end up looking like the renders.
