Project redesigned??

I went to the architects' website and look what I found...the shorter tower on the left has been 'chopped off':




Westin Hotel - Jakarta, Indonesia

A 45 storey 300 room business hotel, plus 100 apartments located on the upper levels.

The tower is designed as a series of large sticks made of glass stacked on top of one another to form a sculptural composition. The hotel sticks have a north-south orientation to minimize direct sun to the rooms.
Double height glass boxes slip in and out of the lower levels to form space for boutique shopping and restaurants.

The redesign may explain why the project's stalled for a while...

i know why they did not demolished the old skeleton

cos just look from the rendering the skeleton right now same as the base of the westin tower (rendering) the one on right (higher)

and also the skeleton if u notice the position is slighty to the right (as shown in the rendering) (the westin tower higher one) i guess that to the left of the skeleton will be build the shorter tower

CONFIRMED: the left office tower has been 'chopped off'...and to add salt to the injury, the project has been "rescheduled", no wonder they havne't demolished the old structure.......

I think it looks better without the office tower to the left. At least now, the hotel and the apartment guests will enjoy their swimming in their privacy.

well, 45 storeys might include 5 levels of basement, and who knows they might have not included all floors which has a "4" in it (superstition). So overall it may just be about 35-40 storey high...and if one storey = 3m, then that's about right = roughly 120m tall..

This new design reminds me of the Westin in Charlotte, NC, USA.

If you take a look closely, the building comprises of at least 22 sticks glass boxes, stacked on top of one another, and each boxes is two storey, with simple math you'll get 44 storey (+1 floor underground = 45 storey).
