Most people only put a tree branch on top like this:

Indeed, well chosen materials. Being one of the first landmarks in the region, this will be a tower to be proud of.

The blue light will only be used during special occasions. Normal white lights will be active every evening/night.
Another photo update, from the regional newspaper 'De Gentenaar':

Ik heb een heleboel foto's van op het dak (uitzichten) tem binnenafwerking.
Kan ik dit ergens gezamelijk uploaden?

It's not an industrial park, it's the former airfield. It was abandoned in the 1980's. At first the grounds were only used for an exposition hall, a hotel, a regional tv station and the rest became a HUGE parking lot. About a decade ago they started working on a redevelopment masterplan though, because the grounds are strategically located between 3 major motorways and one of the countries busiest railway stations.

The masterplan aims at building up the entire area by 2030-ish, with offices and some retail/leisure development. The execution of the masterplan is still in a very early phase. The Ikea store was built only 3 years ago, and was the first and so far only retail realization on the grounds. This tower is the first office development, and they probably started with thāt because it would give the area more visibility for investors or something...

At the moment there's also construction work going on for a couple of smaller office building and condo projects. No huge things yet, because the traffic infrastructure of the grounds is still under construction. There's and internal beltway that's nearing completion (probably by the end of this year), and the tramline that now terminates near the expo hall, will be extended with a one-directional loop around the grounds, but it's still a bit unclear when that's actually going to happen.

Anyway, to cut a long story short: not industrial grounds, abandoned airfield, masterplan, 2030-ish.

PS: the masterplan involves several more towers. They have to be anything between 15 and 27 floors tall, but there's no restrictions on the actual physical height. This one here has 24 floors but already reaches 119m. It is possible, although not too likely, that more 100+ towers will appear here in the next two decades. And if not, at least a good handful of 80+ buildings. It will probably become a nice cluster someday.
