It looks half deflated. Flaccid is not a good look for a skyscraper :-)

I think it really does look too retro. It wouldnt look out of place on an episode of the man from U.N.C.L.E. At least we know it wont date since it already is.

some of the first renderings of this building made it look to deep (front to back) but if it looks like this one above then yes. its not the best in the city but i think its good enough to go up.

i think it fits well with the newish building next to it to which is good

The views from the building will be great,but the building itself is quite strange

Strange yes, but not so strange that it is unlikeable, very likeable in fact...

I don't like it. I would prefer a less "creative" but more soaring vertical design.

Me too! Although that last image didn't look exceptionally bad, but I would still like major revisions!

Another thing I dont like about it... it has a very obvious front and very obvious sides. I think buildings shouldn't face one direction.... or should at least have redeeming features on the rest which don't make you think you have to go round it to see it properly. I wonder what the back looks like.
