Damn Oil Bust

The Bank of the Southwest Tower
Would've been 82 floors, while the entire 79th floor to be used for an observation deck.

Forgot the height, but emporis has it at 427.87 m

If it looks familiar, good eye, because philly got spin-offs based on this design.

Anara Tower, Dubai. Russia Tower, Moscow. Ice Tower, Panama. These were my favorites. I hope everyday that they might repropose them so that they have another chance to be built.
