is the base of this building seriously 95m wide???? Isn't that close to the width of the Burj Dubai's base? and yet the Burj will be more than twice the height of this buliding. Why is the base of the Index so wide?

A shame that the horizontal banding detail on the side does not match up with that of the front.
