That steel is absolutely massive! The core alone will be a behemoth.

I would almost say it has something to do with the future cladding of this. But not sure of course.

Well, it certainly doesn't look like the cladding on renders. Hopefully they didn't change it.

Actually, it sort of does look like the cladding in the renders. Look at cladding on the outer edges of the three wings. That's what it looks like, IMO.

It's flat on the edges. The test cladding shows something different.

You might be on to something. On AS+GG website they show a sleeker more refined design

Yeah You are right!!

There, the facade design is flat, but still very good looking. Usually I would be able to identify the better of the two, but I love both facade designs in this case.

Never thought of it that way. I also have that (I think) but I don't see it in this building.

Indeed, the website shows updated design, but it still doesn't look like test cladding to me. Myabe it's a detail that isn't shown in close up on the renders. Time will tell I guess. Anyway I think it worth to update the first post with new renders.

doesn't change the appeal at all for me, both styles of claddings work perfectly fine and the building is nevertheless just a masterpiece

I find the new one even better. Nice change from countless of flat-glass towers (not that the previous version was bad... or flat ). Really nice detailing on this one. Given they also designed Kingdom Tower I still have hope the final versions of kt will be better cladding-wise.

For once the new glass is better! Makes it look taller and much more sleek

Too phallic for my taste... But still good and futuristic.
