I honestly am not fond of the bars, but overall the tower looks good.

I doubt that. This isn't the only building to have protrusions where you think birds could perch.


Aside from that, I wonder how cleaning of the windows and bars would take place. I bet they probably have that figured out already but your point with the birds just raised that new question in my head.

I quite like the bars. I think they will give it a unique look when its all finished and the sun is shining on it.

Someone knows any other building featuring a big garden on the top? It would be nice to have pictures to have and idea of how will it look like.
