K, don't think of me as stupid but why do all the advertisements on the tower say Bovis now instead of Trump?

BVic those are stunning - the first looks like it is from Columbus, but then I noticed the lock gates.

It's funny, at first I thought the design was ugly. It's growing on me. Now that building is nearing completion I think it's rather attractive!

Bovis is the construction manager. (Not being nit-picky; there is a difference.)

great closeups.
lev82 cladding and lev91 in floors and 92 in core box.
so its topped out at main roof level!
after the last floor is constructed then the small plant turret will be erected which will reach a further 12m.
which is equal to 4 typical floors.

[QUOTE=BVictor1;22450598]A few recent shots...

07/08/08




2-3 storys to go! .
+ podium
+ spire

I you look good they almost done. Because the last levels are higher end you can see it in the render to. I think there will not many levels added. Soon they will begin on the last part "the top".

What a beautiful location! Right on the river, reflecting gloriously in the water!

Size and location is impressive, but I don't like the design.

I just think it is too plain. Not that I want it to be all bling like the Dubai-scrapers which I really do not like, but on that last shot (which is take on a cloudy day I may add) it just stand out except from the height. The setbacks are OK, but the materials used for the facade look boring.
