From this perspective it is similar, but in reality looks quite different.
For example the base of the tower is in a shape of a diamond, not a rectangle.

Heron Tower was completed in 2011. Just for comparison it's 230m, 202m to roof, with a 28m spire.

'Technically', the tallest current building in the COL (with its 'add on' spire), I've always thought it a cheat.

Even more so from this angle and illuminated.

Nevertheless i really like the newest additions in Izmir. Slender and elegant.

It's more like 80 m actually so it should be higher than Palace of Culture with it's spire (237 m) by around 70 m and 40 m higher to the roof than Z44 (192 m).

In Europe for sure but in the world? Not even comparable to HK, Shanghai, NYC, Chicago or Guangzhou.
