The spire really complements the dome nicely.

Agreed. Of all the monolithic square towers in the Marina, this is certainly the one that looks the nicest. Except of course Marino 101 in it's current state. Damn she's a fine skeleton.

on the podium you can now see through the scaffolding covered with green net that they have build this big arab gate style ornament over the entrance (similar to the ones close to the top). looks beautyful. i'm very impressed with how diligently they are adhering to all those little details initially invisioned by the architects years ago. bravo.

The crown looks beautiful. Handover this year?

Hope to see the restart of the "Marina 101" soon to get a beautiful Tallest Block skyline.

This building and the tallest block overall are a brand new cluster but look very dated and out of place already.

You mean brand new buildings with an old design.
