City 17 -Life imitates Art

When I was in Manchester the other day I was struck by the resemblance between it and Half-lif2's City 17, largely as a result of the Beetham Tower. The top images is Manchester, the lower image is City 17

That's possibly the most hideous tower I've ever seen. I couldn't believe it when I saw that it had been built in only the last couple of years. It looks more like a 1960's block of flats on Glasgow's Red Road.
