I don't really like this tower - it seems like it's trying to hard to be cool, edgy and modern with the result it looking messy and strange. Maybe when I see it completed my view will change!

I'm still not sure how it will look on the skyline, but I'm positive that when viewed from the ground it will look amazing.

They're permanent. There's also a lift being constructed in the main core of the structure.
