Something like that, just much thinner?

I think its going to be something like this without the diamond bracing

It starts as a square and halfway up changes to a circle, not tapers?

LOL, nobody has seen it and, at the same time, everybody has seen a feature of it that they find exciting.

So i'm guessing it's a combination of these two features (the block on block design and diamond-like glazing mentioned above)

Also, as I said, most skyscrapers are boxes. Anyone who's been to Canary Wharf in London or to Chicago can attest to that.

If there's news, someone will post it. No need to pointlessly bump threads.
