OMG you have got to be kidding me. It looks exactly the same as Grollo Tower.



I hope it doesn't get built.

I agree the design is not "inspired" by any means. But by that same token, a redesign could be absolutely stunning in the same lot. Let's hope for that instead of wishing for flat-out non-construction, right?

Woww, a supertall again!!!

Thanks Imre for the photo's,

The soil testing en ground works are already begon, i think this tower is goiing to be a fast rising type. Because the structure is quite simple in a sence that there are no difficult volume's. perfect to prefab the hole thing. The top of the building is match more difficult to construct.

This is a very interesting design, very slender en the proportions are perfect!

If someone have ground level plans???... it would be splendid!!!

I have the plans, but unfortunately they are confidential, although I can answer questions about them.

Yes, its a multi-use tower with apartments, a hotel, shopping mall (adjacent lot), convention center, and restaurants/recreation facilities.

Welcome as always Skyprince

Yeah there are observation areas on the top as well as revolving restaurants in the 100-108 levels! I think it will be world's second-tallest tower when completed or maybe one of the top three.
