Our office used to be in Guinness Tower with a northern view, so much time was lost watching the ships and trains and float-planes below. When the new Shaw Tower was announced, the boss was p!ssed that our views would be lost without a reduction in the rent, so the company moved to Waterfront Centre because nothing could be built on the water side & block our views again.
