Tell you what - this is one gawjus tower - its' beauty is in its relative simplicity and elegance.

Although it's not as fresh as deathscar's ones ... but it's still quite informative

these pics were taken on 29Sep.

The other one being missed out there is Casa 880 (to the right of the pic), which is almost finished. I'm guessing it's about 130-140 metres?

Maybe if they build a couple more 150-250m towers around the area, then it would make sense to build a taller 350m (or so) building, but otherwise it skews the skyline too much.
