Looks quite ordinary but modern. They do have some features that brings New York to my mind but still a very nice project. What a fantastic building to live in. The hight is very impressive when considered as a residential building. There will be quite a few appartments in fifty floors. Can anybody tell me, how far from the Central London are those situated? I don't know London that well. Thanks.
