I the last photo above.. the skyline to the right of the bridge kind of reminds me of midtown back in the 1930s-1960s...

They seem to be taking forever to finish this one off. Every time I check this thread I look forward to visible progress - seeing the elevator being dismantled, window coverings removed, and orange mech floor netting removed but I am continually disappointed Keen to see what the building will look like in its finished state.

This building merely repeats its glass panes to hide the rooftop mechanical units. This is standard practice and expected just like we know stone clad buildings aren't actually made of load bearing stone. You obviously despise the top of this building but it isn't a forced illusion or disingenuous twist.
I get that other buildings play their design games, and I haven't called this the grandest of atrocities. I'm simply questioning why this building's established pattern for mechanical and residential floors is different at the top. That and I tend to think there's more to design than "Tall=Great!" or "Simple=Boring!"
