Minimal Guys re-clad approved

This is recent. Not very inspiring. Looks cheap, but better than nothing:

Great Tower there in London ! We here in Germany would be so happy, if we had a supertall.
When will it be topped out?

bad bad bad they are making it look worse!

The original brutalist guys just reeks of 'I serve a purpose, I'm not here to look pretty, jog on.' but this kind of ruins that by 'making an effort'... It's like a very ugly woman wearing TONNES of makeup...

I'll shutup now

May 2012 it opens, I'm not entirely sure when it tops out. December 2011ish?

Pardon me, but it doesn't look as impressive in actual pictures as it does in the impressions on Page 1.

The more recent one is really recent. For the older one, I'd say it was taken around October 2010 (?).

Do you reckon they'll reach the top of the core by August?

Hardly I suppose. If they do, they will certainly have to increase their pace.

Is the glazing provided with a protective coating? In some recent photography, I've noticed a filmy appearance.

Could, of course, be the reflection of overcast skies. Hard to make out without being there.

I don't know if that's a protective coating or they simply don't care about cleaning the glazing too often during construction.
