This tower would look awesome, if it would be maybe 30m higer, maybe even a super tall. Like this, it will turn out rather fat.
And again, shouldn't this building belong to the skyscraper forum? It will feature a spire (not an antenna) rising up to 218m.

To be honest, I think the design is already dated. The fashion of tilted walls and diamond shaped glass boxes was big some years ago. But now it's already cliché and the building isn't even finished. That wouldn't be that bad, if it wasn't towering over the entire city. I think it should have been planned close to the highrise businesscluster.

So whats trendy right now? Straight walls and boxy glass boxes? Or cylindrical cones with metal facade again. Keep in mind trends come and go. This tower will stand there for at least the next 50 years. So its compelty irrelevant what is trendy this year or next year. Quality is what matters.

Damn, just 185 meters, and such a cool building I like it more and more as it rises. Thanks for the updates, and keep them going

i totally agree with you, it should have been taller, at least 220m without spire. It will look too fat when completed.
with the spire it wil be exactly 217m though.
