Luckily from this angle we won't miss Natwest and Post & Mail. For those who aren't in the know - NW is next highrise to right of Rotunda, Post & Mail is second from extreme right.

Both are being replace however, with glass structures ... Post and Mail could reach 125m aswell could it not?

Dense with a few nice buildings, but come on, some of you rave about it as if it's NYC combined with Sao Paulo combined with HK!
..better than that surely?! :)

That's a really great pic of our (can I say 'our' when I've lived here less than a year?) skyline. Will Orion ever be visible in this skyline? -the new tower that's gonna be built in Britol Street should be left of this pic (off the page) too. As is always mentioned in B'ham threads if only Arena central. I think best skyline for density outside London but for looks (partly due to the water) Liverpool is better at the moment.... but I care much more about B'ham 'cause I live here and I have 'high' hopes for it.

It will be very visable and look taller then the Sentinels (2 white buildings next to HCT) ... dont forget Orion 2 will be going up next to it aswell.

See the middle building of the 3 right at the end of the skyline, its black/brown and all things horrible, well its currently being demolished and replace with another tower ...

HCT makes that skyline. Take it away and its pretty damn poor for the UK's '2nd' city.
Swiss Re makes that skyline. Take it away and it's pretty poor for the UK's '1st' city...
