Mr Fox has just pointed out on the Leeds forum that this tower is about to become the tallest building under construction in the UK at this time! Very exciting news for the residents!

There is nothing wrong with the ground work !!!! The driver of the digger said the ground was fine, He said Lumiere is NOT behind schedule and everything is "running on time".. Get in there !

Photos from today.. 21.05.2007 at approx 13:00









If you can notice the hole below,its a deep void in the middle of the photo, was told that it will be filled in !

Great for Leeds! This and Snowhill in Birmingham are my favourite UK towers outside London!

Lumiere looks really great. I'm quite jealous of Leeds for getting it. Nice one!

I look forward to Lumniere rising, as with Snow Hill towers. Should be a worthwhile race this summer with Lumiere/Snow Hill in B'ham
