The tower looks very nice, I hope that the tower doesn't have the same problems on the facade as Burj Dubai.

There is NO advertising on the building

UP (Union Properties) = DEVELOPER/OWNER
NASA / Multiplex = CONTRACTOR

Pretty neat isnt it? In fact it has four cores. (2 major ones and 2 smaller)
But this beast is a true giant wich on its own will be a building to admire at.
