Thanks for the update - full you say? Not outline? That would be great news.

It needs to be hosted on a web page somewhere. If its not up already you can open a photobucket account (http://photobucket.com).

You then upload you files to photobucket and it provides you with an image link, which looks like a web address but it has [img]image tags[/img] around it.

Try 'quoting' a post that has a picture in it to see what it looks like.

Thanks Karl. Looks great. Such a pity I have so little faith in BSC to actually deliver the scheme.

Do you have the view from Victoria Station area available to post? I remember this one was particularly dramatic on the previous set of renders.

Thanks for the renders. I have to say that I still don┤t like these one bit though. The enormous concrete pannelled sides look terrible and sit uneasy against the glass cladding. The podium is AWFUL - much worse than canopus. The tower looks like a 70┤s scraper from the states..

The podium is faithful to the template set out in Fielden Clegg's Greengate masterplan and it is important to view this tower in that context. Nevertheless the design and relationship between the tower and podium and between podium and public realm is signifcantly improved on the browny-looking earlier incarnation of this scheme.

This has the makings of a great scheme.

Thanks for those pictures BTW.

I like these now from what I've seen. Look at the Arndale in that picture for comparison...
