I have only one photo of the UOL building, and not a very good one, but interestingly it's from about the same angle as the rendering ^ ^
Buildings around there are rather old and not-so-nice. There's Phoenix hotel, of which the only good thing is, I guess, the logo. On the other side is I think a building of the Singapore Power company (can be seen on the left of my pic). It's brutalist style, I'm not too fond of it. On the Orchard Road side is the Specialist's shopping centre and some other old-looking ones.huaiwei said:loudy... I meant lousy. There are far worse looking ones just across the road?
