Very nice LordMandeep.

I am hopeful that we will see groundbreaking (parking lot breaking?) tomorrow, but perhaps only preparatory work. In any case, this tower is well designed. The quality is certainly there and it will spell the end for yet another parking lot -- in a very visible location I might add.

Hopefully this will just be the start to many 5 star hotels arising in the heart of our great metropolis!

LordMandeep,
If you're going to repost images from other people, it's usually a common courtesy to host the image on your own space and post that one so it doesn't eat up someone else's bandwidth. Just a tip.
