I believe that the title for the worlds tallest hotel will only be given to buildings that are entirely (or nearly entirely) used as a hotel. Right now this title belongs to Dubai I think and it will most probably remain there for quite some time.

The speed on this one is crazy. Maybe it will top out earlier than 1 WTC (freedom tower) this way.

You just know the tower will be badass when the core is itself as thick as the residential towers next door

Though the tower is twisted, both side of it will looks thinner and thinner from any angle. And I don't think the diagram present the twist, it seems overeating, the real ST is sharp. Also why the color…

What's your problem? We should appreciate the fact that someone spends his time drawing these nice diagrams. If you know it so well, try to make a better diagram yourself.

Keep up the good work Hernandez
