That would be too good to be true!
I guess it is stinginess and lack of inspiration, how they come up with the actual result...

I'm not normally into the roof height nonsense, but I always had trouble considering that little stick on top an architectural detail. So I'm happy with this tower being in the Highrises section.

If they don't use that little stick as an antenna, it is a very useless detail on the building. Because IMO it doesn't enhance the appeal of the tower. Unfortunately, because of laws, a spire without red and white stripes is not allowed.
Anyway, it seems, they removed the scaffolding in the lowest atrium. I'm glad the middle section looks more transparent now.

The Antenna is going to be taller than that right?

It spoils the elegancy of the tower! :-/

we can't expect the antenna to be much taller than before. It is being redesigned / replaced . But i don't know how the new one will look like

I love this tower when the light is right and you can see through the atrium but on dull days this building just looks stumpy and needing more height.

i guess it will be much more bright when the tower is completed.

the perspective above is really nice. but from some angels it just looks fat or boring, as parallel from Sachsenhausen

also nice angle from city centre
