This building looks scary. And for some reason it doesn't look like 600 meters but more 300 meters.

i agree its due to the enormous size of each floor the building is very thick also the tower is only about 400m+ the spire and the clock make up the rest

I think it could have looked much less kitschy if they had gone for a different kind of glass.
This turquois (blue-green) stuff just looks totally out of place. Something with a greyish, black or even reflective shade would have been the better option.

Why does Emporis list this building at 577m (architectual height) "only"?
