I also look forward to its starting construction. Also I can't see anything that makes me think this is an ugly tower. It would look great I believe.

I wonder, where is this observation deck, is it on the roof like on the South Tower of the old WTC or is it an interior floor? I'd love to know the roof height of this tower

Kanto,

Go back to post #53, look at the rendering, and you will see that there is no way they can have an observation deck like the on the roof like the original WTC. The observation deck is on the 111 floor and will have a 10m floor to ceiling height.

As far as the roof height goes, it is like the Chrysler or Burj Khalifa...you really can't define that kind of measurement, because of the architecture. I can only say the final piece of the spire starts at around 594 m.

yeah the whole design kinda screams futuristic yet ancient to me. the podium design looks a bit like a temple build thousands of years ago but all with these shiny colors and this massive height. like a monument built by aliens, interesting, impressive, futuristic and an eyecatcher. the more i look at it the more i like it the perfect mixture of traditional and modern forms. love it.
