Looks really nice but as I already said, it's a pity the crown itself is not stretched a little more.

May I inquire why you feel the spire needs to be stretched?

Because that way it would look better IMO.

Yes, but why would it look better? Do you feel the spire and the building clash in some way; or do you just want the building to be taller.

I also think it'd look better with a bigger spire. It looks puny the way it is. It should be slightly higher and a bit bulkier at the base of the spire as well. I just doesn't suit the building the way it is now.

Why do people care so much about height? I think it looks fine. I would not even mind if the building was shorter. The design is what matters, nothing else.

And the "reshaped" version of Emirates Crown looks terrible. The spire does not fit with the rest of the building in that picture..

I don't care about the height. If it was 60fl with bigger crown/spire and 296m, it would look better. The image should continue from the body of the building to the crown continually. This way the crown looks like it was put there by accident or what. That's the way I see it.

But whatever, the building is really nice. All I am saying is that it could be even better, I am not saying it's looking bad.

It is starting to look good, the main part is still near street level though. As the towers will be progressing it will looks more breathtaking every time.
