The name is so weird... how does a box-shape building got such a name?

Gives you an idea of the dwarfing effect of the central cluster. It makes 150m towers look like stumps.

Spire is to the far left.

I wish the balcony's material is different, may be a darker or thicker glass or add a little bit of conrete like the Radio City because once tenants move in, with their chairs and other stuff placed on balconies, the building will not look as nice and clean. This happens to 18 Yorkville.
