I actually got goosebumps when I first saw the design! Simply amazing.

Indeed, it is an extremely nice design.
Although as a small critique, I would have preferred a tapered crown as opposed to a flat topped crown for this design.

This one doesn't seem to have a large 'empty' crown. The floors are going all the way up to the top.
So 116 floors with 468 meter height is very well possible.

It's a shame that this great tower is on the outskirts of the city.
