I like the first facade element. I reserve my judgement about the facade until there's more to see though.

the tower is glowing at night when you look at it from the distance. looks almost as if the floors are already occupied.

De concrete structure looks like a sculpture at night. This is becoming to be one of the nicest dense clusters in Europe.

the building itself makes the skyline a bit denser. i큟 really excited what the cladding will look like...right now there are just a few parts of the facade mounted, but i like them. looks very clean and straight, a bit conservative
