Vision City is the residential project happening across the street, and is separate from Nina Tower. In fact, the original design was to have Nina Tower look just like the Chrysler Building and make it the tallest building in the world. That plan was axed as it was right on the flight path to the new airport, and subsequently the world's tallest tower became 2 buildings with a different design.

My bad I first thought The Nina Tower was part of that project sort of like Union Square.

The two are quite separate developments, as Nina Tower has been on the books for quite a while - since the 90s. The Vision City website makes it clear what that project encompasses.

It's barely visible - to the left of the photo, just aligned up against the mountain.

Seven supertalls...I didn't know the Center was considered > 300m. Its spire looks more like a fancy antenna.
