cleary, one can see that the setai is an important addition to the skyline. however it would look even more cool, if the crown would be eventually lit up (it's actually supposed to be, i just can't wait anymore )!

Expected more of this building. Now it's almost finished it starts to look like a 70's block. The brown cladding/concrete makes it look so cheap and ugly. I wish it was more glassy. Let's hope for that lit up crown, that would save the building at night

partially, you are right. but in accordance with the ESB the setai is just fine, even in daytime.

OMG! Have you had a chance to look at this building in the day light especially the bright sun and at night it's so elegant. You can't really tell from photographs and should reserve judgement until it is seen in person! I love the finishes that were used. I don't understand your criticism as this is one of the best new buildings as far as quality of design and materials.

I dislike the crown. Looks cheesy. The rest of the building is great though. But I'm glad they're finally allowing some tall buildings near the ESB.

I totally agree. The crown just looks awful. If it were straight up instead of angled outwards it would be much better.
