It is probably a case of too sophisticated a design which those who hail from County Durham cannot yet grasp. Pity that all what Durham City can boast is a pair of under 45 metres tall tower blocks so your criticism is a classic case of sour grapes

^ Actually it's a genuinely awful tower. I like the height but that's it. The texture of the cladding, the tacky bronze/gold color straight out of the 70's and the random vents all combine to make this building look out-dated before it's even complete in my opinion. I used to like this tower but not anymore.

Well Durham City is a small size really. Tho it has a great Cathedral. Checkout Northgate tower in Darlington. tho thats small too.

Sorry for going Off-Topic.

It is a great tower but something has to be made ASAP for those crappy black vents. At the very least, reduce their number.

With its unique color, this will be make so more imposing and eyecatching.

This area starts to look impressive and well molded with all the high rises.
Somehow I don´t like this particular tower, the color and the design isn´t something worthy of the 21st century!!
