I like the old design more than the new one. The new one looks too bland, and the spires make it look like a bug.

Looks nice ... a modern understated design. I think the Kingdom Centre will always be my favorite for that city, though.

Lovely tower but I prefer the old design. Plus the spires are pretty ugly

I agree with the general consensus here. Once they cut the spires they'll have a nice skyscraper.

Well if the spires glew neon colors at night then keeping them on wouldn't be too bad.
