Question: I remember seeing a mock-up of the cladding and the glass was angled not rectangles. The 'view' above seems to show rectangle glass. Which is it?

Maybe I'm just remembering wrong.

The cladding at the V-notch are not rectangular, but the rests are.

Nord, would those horizontal bars in the V-notch as shown in last page's render be the LED arrays? I noticed they're not in the cladding sample.

Is that overhang under the first skylobby really going to stay that way??? I thought the outer cladding would reach the ground.

The building is already around 200m tall but you still can`t see how the final building will look.

The top of the new added columns are just below the roof of Lv39, so it's about 188m now.

This tower doesn't look that tall at all because of how wide it is. I'm sure this is one of those things you have to see in person to truly appreciate

Wow thank you for the diagrams! The more I try to figure out how massive will it be the less I succeed on it.

Awesome progress. This tower could become my favorite if it turns out looking as gorgeous as in the renders.
