Yes, let's hope that more construction will follow the presentation of the redesign soon.

Now the tower's icon and trademark shall be seen from all over the city. To me, this looks a bit gaudy, not as elegant as in the old design. And I also prefer the way Dubai's diamond tower (Almas Tower) has used the gem topic primarily at the podium instead of the top.

yeah
the old top (without the diamond) looked more elegant

BTW the reason why construction is so slow is that they had to change the basement floors.
city wanted more car parks (they added a public car parking)

Totally agree about it being gaudy, but at least the "diamond" seems to be semi-obscured at the top. No one's commented about the color change. Liked the sea-green better as well...but then I suppose that was due to the diamond being added. Not too many green diamonds in the world I guess...
