you think that this looks like a commie block?:

if so half of the world is commie blocks









this is a development recently completed by the same company in salford manchester:

this is high class living for the uks standards, bear in mind we dont have many high rise buildings so there is nothing common about them.

A construction update. They really are cracking on with that rebar.

Looks good. Clearly many British cities are having major construction plans going on. I've noticed the sort in Bristol, Birmingham, Cardiff, Belfast and Newcastle. Nice pictures.

I like this building, it is sleek and modern and without any superfluous ornamentation; yet it could have been a wee bit more original, as we say here in the States, "edgy." A slight curvature to the design, perhaps? Still I'm happy for Sheffield getting a major skyscraper like this - I visited Sheffield once about 4 years ago because I have dear friends who live in the nearby village of Barnsley. By the way, the Yorkshire countryside just outside Sheffield is extremely lovely, the area has a lot charm and the beautiful rural landscapes typify "England's green and pleasant land."

well we all would have liked a slightly more 'adventurous' design but this is our very first highrise and the council didnt want to scare the public with an outrageous design. people are very touchy in this city when it comes to groundbreaking developments, a lot of people would like it to stay a heritage city. luckily many people are supporting the redevelopment of the city and sheffield is seeing the biggest building boom its ever had. we are all very proud of it
