I saw the render and I thought there's no way that would be built. Looks like it's actually a good way up, haha

The quality of the cladding will make or break this, as always.

Giant lotus, actually. And by the looks of it, a very unique and attractive one!

Looks like they reached the observation levels!! Nice. Can't wait to see the finished product. I hope the Lotus clad comes out nice. It is unclear in the renders.

I don't want people to hate me for saying what I'm about to say.

I have traveled to Sri Lanka and have nothing but affection and admiration for that beautiful country. The majority of the Sinhalese are Theravada Buddhists and this is home to the gorgeous Temple of the Tooth in Kandy. The lotus is an important symbol in Buddhism.

In my opinion, this tower looks cheesy. Looks like one of those gimmicky structures you might find in one Emirate states. I am not against doing a lotus motif in architecture, but they could have designed much nicer than this.

Lotus is actually a political symbol, It was the symbol used for the Development programs of the old government(Which started the project). This is not the only Lotus building. There is also the Lotus Pond Theater
