I love this building and I think that red colour will give a much needed splash of colour to an otherwise grey climate

^ In some ways, yes. Due to the WW II bombing most of the buildings in the city centre date from the same period as buildings in for example Tokyo. However, right from the edges of the centre (and also some parts within) the historic buildings take over which gives a great contrast and makes it very much unlike Tokyo (different architectural style).

^ Under construction as well - rising above ground level as we speak!
Very neat tower if you ask me

That building in Poznan is only 81 meters, not counting the antenna.

And only the color could maybe be the same, we don't know the final shade of red that the Red Apple will get. Besides that this tower has horizontal red stripes while the Red Apple will have vertical red stripes.

Yes, of course, but I wrote that the tower in Poznan is some like the tower in Rotterdam, not the same. Rotterdam's tower will be taller than The Poznań University of Economics, but our tower is 28 years old.

Of course not. Rotterdam's Red Apple will be taller and younger than Poznan's one and Your, so Your opinion is normal.

I think this tower will perfectly fit with Rotterdam this city has a lot of strange shaped towers or strange colored towers

Except for the colour i don't see any similarities between the Poznan tower and Red Apple.

Nice updates, this tower could become one of the best new buildings in Rotterdam in ages.

Sorry, but I also hardly see any similarities in these 2 buildings except for the red colour of the exterior. There aren't many red towers in the world and maybe therefore you compared these two, but they're totally different (design, cladding, height).
