If you had to guess when would demolition start?
in 2012, first time Oxford proposed this project. that was the peak time for Office projects, this project didnt take off back then. i think we can say this project wont move forward for atleast 5+ years, could even be a decade and we can probably see a redesign as well. so forget about it at the moment.

Yes, a redesign in a few years before building this thing gets built might save it and us. I vote for Jean Nouvel.

An interesting choice. Now are you thinking some of his more squat phallic shapes, LOL, (I'm hoping not)...........or are you thinking his burst of colour in Marseilles?

I just had the weirdest thought..........looking at my post above...........and thinking of '42's comments.........

If you combined the green, the red and a slight variation on the sharp angles seen above, you could have the decorated Christmas Tree Tower.

It would certainly be unique, I think.............

Hmmmm
