[QUOTE=BarbaricManchurian;103618035]No it's NOT the 404m. It's midrises and a shopping mall. How many times do I have to repeat this?



Sorry, for me you don't have to repeat this.

was the 404m one completely scrapped or is it just further away so that it is not visible on the floor plans?

It's part of a later phase, expect more information within a few years.

It'll look great as a whole, but my favourite aspect is the three-winged footprint. If any building has that, I like it.

All of those renderings and diagrams posted above really make me appreciate this building a lot more than I did before. This really is an impressive skyscraper.

yes the building is quite underrated, but i think the building will get a lot more attention once it is rising

Yes, underrated is the right word.

But this tower will be as impressive as the ST!

swfc doesn't have such an epic sky club. Not to mention it's over 100m taller than swfc's observation deck.
