Looks like the spire has been taken down significantly.

Wait, why are there gaps in the cladding?

I think you're looking at the mechanical levels.

Eurasia Tower has had the same design since the 90s.

They all had pretty much the same design since the 90s. But during the construction they cut everything that made them special to reduce the cost, and the finished IBC looks like a parody to what was planned. As for Eurasia, just compare the render with the finished tower, especially that ghastly entrance with different colors of glass, stone, steel - like, take every material there is and just throw it all over the place. And what about those vents, no order whatsoever.

Look at the render below. The waves on the IBC Core, Evolution's entrance and crown, the plaza, Mercury's facade and spire (not to mention that screen and vents), Imperia's facade and top, Federation's spire, and so on. None of these changes were for the better, just to cut the cost. And in the end, instead of a beautiful modern complex, we got cheap looking buildings and their surroundings.

I don't they're ugly, but there is no doubt the spire would've give them that distinctive touch. Without it, the conjunct looks more ordinary.

Well the idea was to design it like mast and sails. Now it's just sails.
