It looks much better than the old IBC, it's like a cross between London Bridge Tower and 2 IFC

Don't know if it will be built though.

I think it's got a timeless majestic quality to it. I seriously hope this building gets built...in Minneapolis.

I like the IBC one instead. This one looks kinda bloated.

It looks pretty nice. The crown might be the best part of it.

I like it, more so than the LBT. The color and shape make it more attractive for me. What did the IIBC look like?

I hope this project will not replace IBC.That one was quite more original and it had a better design.

fantastic looking project, to those saying its a rip off of LBT, look at the render you posted, they look totally different, its like saying sears tower and empire state are the same building, as they're tall with setbacks.

and as for the comparison with the ryungyang, again it couldnt be more different, the ryungyang is far wider, with a different profile all together.

if you actually look at this tower, it has a star shaped floorplan which is different to everything its been compared to. Personally i think its a beautiful and original design
