Four years on, and nothing much has changed: SU7173 : Western Tower, Reading. Even the graffiti artists seem to have given up. The tower was built in 1965-67 to the designs of Robert Wood & Partners.
There is a plan to demolish and replace with new towers and shops, but the economic climate has presumably put it on hold.
