I love height increases. Especially with good designs like this one.

Looks pretty obvious to me, judging on the fins of the current building, the shape, etc.

Hmm I will hold judgement on this until I see more. It does seem a bit bland but not all high rises will be iconic or 'great'. Any updates?

I'm not too sure on the rules - because this is a height increase. But its definitely no T/O and it is definitely U/C.

I think the cladding on the lower structure should reflect what colour it will be on the tower, and it's a nice colour at that.

The additional floors definitely help give the tower better proportions
