Nice to see a city that is using some imagination in shaping its skyline.

I haven't seen this one yet. I like the sand coloured glass! But the balcony holes make it look a bit unfinished.

To those who say it looked dated: You should all know that the vintage/mid-late century look is becoming more popular these days. It has a certain character that the contemporary blue buildings of today don't have. Even in fashion, vintage chic is in.

It's just a colour. No reason for it to be limited to 40 years ago.

Personally, I much prefer the recessed balconies to something that would otherwise wreck the sheer curtain wall and aesthetic of the building.

Interesting to see how the colour of the cladding varies according to the amount of light. It seems to range from light silver to darkish blue and black. What colour is it really?
