Certainly impressed with how St Alban's Place appears. Certainly very nice for a student residential development. Are there any pictures of the inside?

Now that it’s complete externally, the use of different shades is great. Really helps it to hide its mass well. Looks far less bulky, and far more elegant than it could have done. Great job!

Certainly not.

Looks like a render there. Probably the blue sky.

That second shot is excellent. Could be Berlin.

Y’know, when I first saw the designs for this I wasn’t at all keen on the asymmetry of the two lower wings. Now, I couldn’t care less! I love heading east on the Inner Ring Road and seeing this beauty come into sight as the road curves round.

Does anyone else feel like this looks like something that should have been taller?

I'm not talking in a "everything should be taller" way, but specifically to this building. Doesn't it look like something has been lost from the top?

Yeah I see what you mean, I think it's the step design that gives it that feeling and possibly it's placement as it's basically on its own. Still a great looking building though and if you look at it facing the smaller step it doesn't look too short.
