Is the big tower in the middle of that render part of the Fortune Center? Never saw it before. How tall? Should be 280m+...

I think that is just a rust/water-proof coating, but wouldn't those frames be covered by the glass curtain wall anyway, so they'll not be visible, at least from outside the tower.

I think they will be visible, please check the renderings. Anyway those frames add some good effect to the whole building
