Nice one. Very clean. In the first render it reminds me of 7WTC.

It's perfect! I was not expecting THAT.

If it was only closer to the apartments currently under construction on the shore.

I think the name is meant to be catchy...were all gunna remember Bigboy tower. Its something that sticks, even though i don't like it, its clever. You'll see that area will turn to a area of skyscrapers. I thought it was going to look similar to the WTT because its from the same Architect, he let me down hehe i love WTT.

Bear in mind that the lovely green area between the quai on the right and the apertment buildings [including 3B] on the left is already bound for second major Gdansk N-S street [some call it the eastern Gdansk expressway even though it is going to be a standard 2x2 alley]. This means there will be fields of land screaming for investors to come and build the 3B alikes. The road will be connected to Southern expressway, will pass by the Gdansk harbour terminals, the Gdansk-Sopot Sports Arena [under construction now] further north and lead to the Western espressway. This is all planned before 2012 Euro Cup. This plot of land is bound to populate, trust me. I only hope there will be more apartments than office buildings in this quartier!

Awesome, wait for more to come in this area of Gdansk. Possibly other developers will follow.

Looks great... it's very alone, but I guess that's not a bad thing.
