they could have added 5 more floors here guaranteed to be unchallenged, yet still opt for 73m. Sad!

They still could cheaply amend it yet, I'm more upset at that than the actual building

Horrible decision to go ahead.
Even in developing countries this kind of architecture is not used for landmark buildings.

Then again this type of height is also not used for landmark buildings!

Well we'll need to go taller now, just to blot these ugly sisters out. 100m shouldn't be controversial in the Docklands.

One of the chimneys is 680 ft 9in, the other 681 ft 9in. (Wikipedia)

207.8m and 207.48m high respectively.

Indo article about Exo.

Calling it the tallest building in Dublin, obviously got their finger on the pulse...

Read it again, it says tallest office building, which is true at 73m, the Google Docks building is currently the tallest at 67m.

It looks exactly like the multi-story car park in the centre of Clapton-on-Sea. Only a bit bigger....
