This one is a pure beauty. I dont see it as a "copycat" at all. It's rather lots differrent from the Torso Turning, only twisting that whats incommon.

Of course it is, right in the entrance.

However, just on the next plot to it (on right side of the picture) a 400+ meter tall is likely to be build, while between Infinity and the sea, it seams to be another plot, that who know what monster might be host.

OK....even though TT doesnt seem to have a 90 degree twist like infinity and the fact that infinity hasn't been built yet gives you the right to pass that judgement

while we are at it, why not reinstate that NY is better than Dubai?

Calm down... no need to take it so personally.... TT will always hold a special place in skyscraper history because it was the 1st of it's kind.
... and I don't think his comment was to be taken too seriously.

Structure and fachades are totally different, they are similar in the use and the twist. Just that.

Very nice looking tower. And it is very high for a twisting one.
In Moscow the building of a twisting tower has been approved as well.
