OMG I never really noticed before but the outer skin of the tower is just like the former wtc in NYC. The solid steel frame around the tower lol

Yea they looks similar but technically they are different. The steel pillars at former WTC did carry part of the weight of the building but this is just classic hanging facade.

Correct me if I am wrong, I am not 100% sure.
