This is a quality high rise, not doubt about that. The use of masonry cladding is something that goes back to earliest times and will never be dated as some have suggested, if anything glass buildings are somewhat dated as they are reminiscent of the 1960's when it first became fashionable and that decade along with the next produced some of the ugliest bastards ever created. (though not always in glass)

The central scaffolding has been dismantled - so Tower 185 should be topped out indeed.
Cladding now right below last regular slab level.
