Project update September 2018
As of the 11th of September, the Embassy Tower in St Leonards has hopped out in its construction phase & the crane is coming down. What a fabulous addition to the St Leonards skyline.
The tower looks so good it could almost pass off as a render, a very impressive job indeed by Hutchinson Builders.
