Unless it is a good design, I'd rather this be skinny. If this building were wide it would attract way too much attention.

I believe the Drake is being demolished right now and this won't be able to be under prep until so... Unless it's already demolished and it is prep...

I hope that this thing goes up fast. With such small floor plates, one would assume it will

Nope, not a peep.

Here's a hint:

The Little Drummer Boy says: "I'm Cuban!"

PS: Look at what he's drumming on!



This tower is no Torre Verre or London Shard, but now that people's expectations are not sky high, they'll be happy when they see it. What first world city other than NY is even building 400m buildings right now?
