I'd personally like to see the top glass section redesigned... it looks really odd sticking up there. I'm also not sure what the point of the big concrete wings at the side are? There's no floor area on either side of them. It seems far more "over-braced" than it needs to be.
From what this architect has done before - i would have expected a bit more... we'll see how it looks, i don't think it's the best render... don't think it's on a par with SOM unfortunately, and i'm British!
Still I think those shades over the windows are a good idea from an environmental point of view.

No no we can no longer count floors when they start installing the cladding.

I also think the two concrete ends of the building are a bit too big.

They have finally started tagging the floor numbers, HUGE number tags I may add, so now it can be said for sure that it has reached the 20th floor.

This is a great development. Very impressive tower indeed and great progress also.
The location is very good for the skyline. Because it is nog on the SZR it wille bring more depth to the skyline.
Any new pictures on progress btw ??

OMG!! The best building U/C Anywhere!
And being behind SZR it will really make a difference to the skyline.
