Wonder what building such a building costs. I mean the one in the video above, not Sky City.

Look at the sky throughout the video. Only 2 days? More like 4-6.

Now it's too asymmetrical. It should have been two pairs of different wing designs.

i am really not sure which design i prefer, however it shows that these concepts can do pretty many variants in buildings, even with only consisting mostly of boxes.

I totally love this new design.

Athough it still being a Little boxy, we can seem improvements like the designers work on the symmetry (or assymetry), five helipads (instead of one in the original proposal) and also the height of the tower can be enjoyed a bit more with the new slimmer design.

Good for the Broad Group team, and for us, the skyscraper lovers.

Not really, the setbacks are on different heights, which also means they adjusted for aerodynamics (i.e. the wind tunnel testing .... so take that, patrikus )
