Is this the one which you can see as you come out of the train station? As in straight ahead, in the built up area.

Probably because it's slightly up a hill Andy. Something people have praised Sheffield council for (in contrast to places like Leeds and Birmingham).

no its not praise exactly but the location of the tower is important because it is supposed to be a landmark so that visitors coming out of the station can see which direction the city centre is, because funnily enough people do get confused. its sort of a centrepoint marker

What a great design. A real score for Sheffield.

I once spent 10 minutes in Sheffield as I changed bus there. All I really saw was a large shopping centre, and some cooling towers. I remember that everyone there was really nice though. I'm glad this is going up, Sheffield deserves great design.
