91m... It's the third building of such size to be torn down in The City (the others being Draper's Gardens and Limebank House).

I preferred the original base, looks so much better than what we're getting, not to say the base now isn't bad

I wonder how they'll demolish this tower in 15-20 years.
Seems like one of those structures that won't last in the public's eye too long. I sense an end similar to what it's replacing.

I'm dating myself here, but the building being demolished was prominantly featured in the Yes video 'Owner of a Lonely Heart.'

From the new batch of skyscraper being projected and built throughout the world. I claim this one to be the most interesting one.

Love the curvy design and also the not so pretentious yet very contemporary style.

Maybe one more floor to go till the scaffolding gets to the concrete crown.
