Don't know about you guys, but I'm a tiny bit disappointed with the crown feature there. Since they have already started to remove the scaffolding, does that mean what we now see is it?

There might be structural statics reasons not allowing for more surface areaon the crown. But it looks like a "ultra light" version of the original render.... hmmmm

Your right Princess That does look very disappointing... Hopefully they will clad the steel columns that make up the crown, they ruin the building, and make it look rushed as if hey ran out of money, as one portion of it is steel and the other portion steel cables. Hopefully the illumination will make up for that.

Indeed. However this final render gave us how the crown it's going to be. There are still some elements that (I presume) hang on the cables. Still, those cables look not only loose but the aesthetic kinda lazy and far from robustness.

I think that itīs what makes the name - building seems like practicaly unfinished, the top is influently disappearing into the air, so it seems to continule...like neverending spiral- so thatīs Infinity Tower!

they might look like loose cables, but those are quite massive steel bars thick as an arm.

It reminds me of a cage with a fence on high voltage.

No, they look EXACTLY as what has been build so far. What you percieve as difference is actually the lack of perspective on the render, which is present on photographs and eye-sight.
