One of the most important reasons that almost all these slim tall buildings are residential.
People want alot of windows in their apartments so floors can't be to big, then the middle section would'nt get enough light. For office buildings this light is less important so they can have bigger floors.

By the way I believe this building is not residential so this one is the exception.

Very unique "stitching" on this building. I like it. Should be interesting now to watch the crown finished.
