oooh, pardon me, can't get excited. Pastiche. Why do architects insist on going backwards and apeing something that could have been designed 80 years ago.

ive just decided some people get pissy when a tower isnt all glass and sterile looking.

Sometimes i prefer brick and stone to glass and steel

what a lovely looking skyscraper. The old look is definatley more charming then steel/glass box towers seen every where else. This is what potential residents want in a new unit block.A bldg to have homely appearance and gothic old style overtones.
10/10.
thanks
