If only they kept the original design. Prism has definately made a mark! At 1/3 the cost, it's more iconic than britam and uap.

No the finishings are cheap and very basic and the floor seemed much rougher than I see for other buildings and not many amenities either

Cladding has been underway for sometime actually. Sadly I'm not allowed to take photos from my place of work due to security reasons.

Also, if I'm counting correctly, the above building has 22 floors including the bottom floor behind the metal sheet fence

Could have been iconic if they went with initial designs and 30floors.Good thing pure glass will turn out just ok
