We don't know how much they changed it. Maybe they just removed the clock but are keeping the shape. The fact that the setback has appeared as the render predicts makes me think this might be the case.

Edit: Rehosted the image in question at imageshack so Altin can see

the removing of the clock alone would make it 100 times better, and it would no longer be an ugly copy of Big Ben

They definitely seams to be el-cheepo developers. They are developing another 30F tower and after finishing the structure, nothing is happening there and slowly it is becoming 1 year since then.

Even with the clock it doesn't really look anything at all like Big Ben. But any building anywhere that has a clock will make everyone scream "OMG it's Big Ben"[email protected]!!!1!11

for sure it is not a 100% copy of Big Ben , but it still has some similarities....and i'm not one of the guys who say "big ben" to every building with a clock
