No. It's a lot taller than London - more people living on sq km.

Its amazing how date this building already looks, and its not even finished, I love the design, but the glass?!?! UGH!? This is like glass a powerful bank would have used in the late 80s, early 90s, in the USA.

Early late 80-s or early 90-s were just twenty years ago, building that can easily stand for centuries can hardly get dated in that time.
Also, we here missed 70-80s period in highrise architecture and there is nothing wrong in doing some catch up, as proper skyscrapercity is expected to have all the time periods represented.
