I just hope this sore thumb will be surrounded by larger and more refined towers soon enough, as proposed. It's so buttugly it burns eyes.

It makes the main roof of ESB (1050 or so feet) look pretty small. ESB is my favorite skyscraper in the world but it's about time it lost its dominance in midtown.

With so many 400+ meter towers in the planning, it will be one of many.

I have a question about those mechanical floors that are open to the elements - will they be putting in any kind of windmill devices to generate electricity? I assume the winds will be strong in those levels.
