this looks a beast, but aren't the renderings looking very Beetham cladding. How tall is this going to be, either way, it's got decent height to a deserving northern city, if this were to be built it would be the tallest building u/c in the UK, before any of the London talls or Eastgate get started.

Reason why Internationals don't come here is because I assume other than famous London, not much going on or they think that England/Britian are still building castles and probably assume that we live in Village towns and think we all have posh accents, so my uneducated American and Canadian colleagues on this forum think, lol! They Assume that we all have tower of Londons and Stratford upon avon heritage. Just joking.

The construction of Lumiere will comprise of two towers of a height of 54 storeys / 171 m and 32 storeys / 112 m both of which are to be clad in glass with the taller tower to be predominantly blue and the smaller tower to be of a reddish texture.

So this will be same height as Deansgate tower in Manchester, this has more storeys too. I understand there is another tall being constructed or proposed, is this the tower that looks like the kite and is that proposal taller or Lumiere taller?

yes that's Criterion Place also with two towers which the status is unclear but many think it will get built. However that will be shorter than Lumiere at around 160m i think

I wish the same could be said for Arena Central... Be interesting to see what they come up with for that though!

eughhh....i hate that type of cladding. It looks as if it will age terribly.

Having said that, I do like La Lumiere though, it looks right good.

Really don't like the look of that Warsaw project, looks outdated and tacky imo.

But anyway, I love these Lumiere towers, absolute beauties!! Leeds is well and truly putting itself back on the map where it belongs!!
