So 200m Foster is what we are getting. I'm perfectly fine with that.

I like the fins' appearance better from the back. It gives the tower an art deco appearance from the rear.

This should turn out beautifully. Foster will use very high-quality materials.

It should be around 800 feet tall to the top of the spire.

L&L did say that they were interested in using these architects for projects in the future. And I think Hadid was aware because she value-engineered the top of her tower. If she wasn't serious about winning their business, she would have produced a more visionary but economically unfeasible design.

In the end, it's really nothing special. Regardless, it's better than what's there at the moment, and at least nothing historical is being destroyed.

Love the fins on the top, if it is built with those on top then that would be awesome!

Yup, the Hadid design is far better than what will be built there
