This finalist %60 looks like Russia Tower. They better choose the "S" style tower.

It looks great but it looks like kind of small and I think it resembles more like a tourist-style building rather than a typical office building or a hotel building IMHO.

By the way, what is the height of that?

I like the Foster design too but the "S" version is still the best. Hope they go with that one.

so is there anything official, or is it all just speculation?

Any press release or statement from someone, who should know it?

It's not a copy, it's just a common re-use design from Foster...I can see Freedom Tower's render in that last pic.
