one of the best facades ever, but i totally dislike the heartless roof closure. a roof top with outflowing waves or fringing waves as a transition to the waves on the facade would have been much better.

too bad, but nevertheless still a top notch building.

It is really original that 3 out of 4 sides has all these curves and the 4th is absolutely straight. Weird looking at first, but then you get the idea: that this is how it supposed to be.

The flat side is an utter abomination, anyone that tires to excuse it is deluded.

This tower is 876 feet to the tallest occupied floor. There is at least 35 extra feet of mechnical space above that. I would say that this tower is around 910-915 feet/278-279m.
