Nice to see some progress and nice to see lots of projects progressing in the economic downturn, in the UK, its a joke, so many are on hold, and we have crap planning laws and pathetic heritage groups who hate anything tall and modern.

i have read a few articles on the situation in the UK, i read that they are in an extraordinary economic situation right now so for that reason many buildings are being cancelled and put on-hold and such, and british leaders think that skyscrapers are just a way to provide a false sense of masculinity anyway back on topic

i am so happy frank gehry finally got to design a skyscraper for NYC, i saw his work at MIT and it is marvelous, i hope he gets to design more in the future, this will be awesome in the skyline

The heritage groups are a good thing, without them, there wouldn't be a Victorian building left! Please, there's enough crap going up in London, and the needn't be any more. British cities are quite beautiful the way they are, Thank you!!

Now to get back on topic. I went by the site the other day and so far, it looks good! I have been following this one from the Pace University building next door for the past year.

Yeah, although I'm worried that certain sides don't look wavy enough and are just your usual straight wall. It's a good building anyway, and I'm glad it's moving along great.

The south facade is not supposed to have any undulations and will be flat.
