I have to agree with spyguy, I like the new design of the building much better and height increases are always good to me!

Are there any more renders besides that? I don't like it. It looks like an old design (like 60s or 70s IMO). If there are renders with better information, I may change my mind.

The height increase really makes the difference here. It totally changes the look for the better.

Hard to believe that something this great will be built. I have a lot of hopes for this tower. Never expected to see this kind of design.

The added height is a huge plus for this building and the LSE neighborhood.
