If tower was in China or the developer was Chinese or employing one, I could understand the miss-communication part when the architect asked what you want the top floor to be for ... but this isn't the case.






EDIT: The seamingly copy-cat smilies arangement with the post above was purely coincidental and non-intentional.

Actually why didnt they make something more interesting like this:

This is in a hot climate (Mexico City) as well, but is much more interesting even if it is 36 stories high.

Yes, very nice! Btw. it's from 2010-08-09 already, so maybe floorplates have gone up more than one level in August meanwhile.

Meanwhile another rise of the core, here 97th floor seems to be done and half visible below formwork. Change of core shape can be seen above 95th floor.
