Yup I think the cgi model is better and has more details in the shape of the building. Those discs look better in the cgi as well.

a bit of a weird design, but i think it can be kind of a good supporting tower, certainly is unique.

Will the discs part contain restaurants? Would be nice if it is like Tokyo Sky Tree's observation deck. Sana ginawa nalang round yung building instead of square. mas bagay

It's supposed to be a disc each for a resto, view deck and an AM/FM radio station. The building itself will house the UNTV Studios.

Yeah that scale model is fugly, but the building itself could turn out nice... or a disaster.

Very optimistic that new UNTV Broadcast Center will turn out nice...

Hopefully may makuha tayong official renders from Rchitects, Inc. and UNTV also.

Looks so vintage this skyscraper/tower combination. Differently by others, i don't dislike it.

I agree, it looks weird. Both the top and bottom parts would be decent towers on it's own, but this combination looks like a weird unusable product. It just doesn't look right...

Well the original concept of UNTV CEO Daniel Razon was a building with a large base, more like the Eiffel Tower, but since the land area can't support the base for a tower with such height, the conclusion is that design. Which is not bad for me.

FYI: We will hold office on it soon GW
