If you guys could just give me your opinions on the tower, do you like it, dis-like it. Is it too in functional to be developed?

There's not enough detail to be able to say anything. It really needs labels. What part does what, how high is it, etc..

A colored sketch/render would not be amiss either.

Finally, I'm not entirely sure that this is an appropriate thread for that. I may be wrong, though, so don't take my word for it.

It's best for a new Architect to work on something small first. Things like 5-10 story building and slowly bigger and bigger project.

Also, like others stated, We can't give our opinions on just a shape. Design it a bit more, think of what the floors should be for, and think if something this huge is possible.

What I love about the following render is what is around this tower .. it looks like the area just next to it will be dominated by a jungle of supertalls .. of course what we have now is just placeholders and fillers but they definitely say something on what's planned there and roughly counting the floors these towers in the district will have floors btw 80 and 90! except for the 2 closest towers they look 100F+
