at least it does not seem to become a box, like all the surrounding towers.
A bit more variation in designs would be welcome.

didn't realize it splits into three parts on the top. it is pretty much empty space surrounded by three columns that are connected by little bridge thingies and it all topped out with a roof. i really wish these columns would be accessable though

surely such a huge crown would be used as an observation deck or something?!

The crown acts as a 'beacon' for the harbor.
