Don't remind us... not even sure if the re-development was worth it now!

They will need to bring out the window cleaners to wash off all that Sahara dust.

I walked past the Cheesegreater a couple of nights ago and noticed that the lighting around the chevron detail on the side is now on. I took a couple of pics, but unfortunately was unable to upload them for some reason.

I can say that the effect is quite striking!

This has to be my favorite skyscraper of Europe
I watched the documentary of mega-skyscrapers and I must say I was speechless

Torre BBVA in Mexico City, has the same height I think and same architect

What is this tube indicated by the red arrow?

Guy structural or pipe plant? could be the rain to drain the water of the glass roof? In the render I had never seen ...

Maybe it's just a structure. But more like a pipe

Wonderful building, just wonderful. Maybe even better than the rendering. I can't believe how much it dwarfs the Lloyd's building. Richard Rogers has another huge feather in his cap!

I love the architecture of the building. It more different from the common style of buildings.

The building is not yet completed. Skyscrapers take a long time to build. If a new post had to be made every few months, the forum would be littered with useless re-posts.
