The tower is just perfect! Too bad about the ugly base. So much more could've been done.

Thanks for the huge update. Looks like they're filling in the north side "scar" where the elevator was.

I don't know why, but every time I look at the top I think, it needs gargoyles hanging over the edges. Not Chrysler building gargoyles. Similar, but more modern.

Hell yea now that would be simply spectacular!!!! Too bad bad it seems like ornamentation doesn't exist in modern architecture anymore (atleast from what I've seen)....
