I still think they will proceed with the twins. It will look better if it retains its symmetry.

Is the red line the whole footprint of the tower, or are the orange or yellow lines part of it too? If not, what are those?

stats update!!
official height of tower- 437.5m (helipad)
roof height-432m
lev100 observation deck-418m
number of floors-103 not 104.
thread title should be changed to reflect this.
looking at most recent construction photo, i would say red line is core and yellow rim of tower.
cheers ;-)

If im not mistaken thats the core of the building that rising, we probably won't be seeing the actual footprint of the building for a while.
