I agree with you 100% The look of the project is absolutely modern and cutting edge...but the height is a little misleading. I don't want to start a spire debate. Just a comment.

If you don't like the spire you can consider it a tv tower 506 m tall that stands very close to the tower that is 360 m tall.

Don't get me wrong. I love the design and I think that this is one of the few buildings that has smartly intergrated the spire into the design. This project makes a bold and unique statement. It works well. The height is the only issue...just the Trump in Chicago.

Well, it is not a spire per se, think of it as a very slim tower accommodating elevator shafts and skywalks

IMO its a spire that increases it's height by 146.6m
I can't believe that spire is going to make this tower taller than the SWFC

you could continue this with a comparison of even taller buildings, but its pointless. the argument here is ... the building is not really half a kilometre tall...the spire looks ridiculous now, way out of proportions. the previous smaller spire was more appropriate.

Not everybody agrees with you. I prefer the new length of the spire.
Besides the roof could be higher, just wait...
