You mean the outline in the foundation in the shape of three prongs?

I have to give Greenland a lot of credit for hiring great architects for its projects (especially AS + GG) which is why it's buildings look so futuristic. Unfortunately, the picture above brings back a sad memory -- this is about the stage where Calatrava's tower in Chicago reached when it was cancelled. But I'm sure the Greenland Center will have much better future.
