No dramatic news for Tower185... but yesterday one crane has been clearly lowered. The second is enough for the work at roof and facade. Both seems to move on rather slowly at the moment.

11/January/2011, my screenshots from Vivico-webcam to compare:

I don't know many skyscrapers from the 70s or 80s that have green glass!

I was thinking the same thing! I do like the tower though.

The 70s weren't such a bad era (from what I hear).

@ im from zw038, why don't you just drop it. A couple of posts earlier we read that it was from 1985 and a couple of posts above that was it from 1970. Too bad to for you that you didn't manage to stir up an opinion in this thread.

@newfvgffm: Your panorama pic rules, thanks! Never seen the skyline from this perspective so far.

Great pano!

Is T185 T/O now? And if, is it really 200m tall? I think it looks reasonably shorter than Westend Tower I from almost all perspectives.

Diese Antwort stellt mich nicht wirklich zufrieden..

I guess it must be the perspective.

It is the perspective. In the pano T185 is further away. The tower isn't quite T/O yet, but almost. The 200m mark is only being reached with that service core.

Though I'm sure the inside will be top notch, seriously... Look at it: it's right out of the womb and looks decrepit already! What were they thinking...
