After many tests at night and testing of different colors by the manufacturer, they found that green and white colors together are the most visible colors at night. that is all

The clock motor looks like a ship cannon.

Forgive me if this has been asked before, but do the clock and spire appear out of scale to anyone else but me? I realize the need to increase visibility of the clock face from the ground, but that only begs the question about the functionality. The spire, meanwhile, feels very brutish compared to the tower as a whole.

My other lament about the design is the clustering of structures surrounding the main tower. While perhaps vital to the economics of the development overall I regret their intrusion on the view of (and, presumably, from) the main tower. It's to me as if the whole development is not greater than the sum of its parts.

On the positive I appreciate the detailing I'm seeing the actual construct as opposed to the renderings. A nice balance between classical skyscraper form and the nuances of local art and design. I think the green of the clock would be quite appealing, as well, both for cultural ties and softening the glow of such a large surface. Anxious to see the finished product there.

Cheers.

If you look at the renders, the east clock doesn't look round.
It looks elliptical, with the width diameter is smaller than the height.
Maybe the scale is off, but the east height is greater and the width is
less than the north face.

Hey CULWULLA, in your diagram, the top of the spire is off centre.
Were they drunk when they designed it? lol

PS great diagrams as usual, we all love them.

East/West look like having the same height as North and South, just differ in width

Looks to me like someone messed up the image resizing, the whole thing looks stretched. So i think it's gonna be just as rectangular and the clock face just as round as the west side.
