The flat side viewed from Jersey works well with the rest of the skyline, sense most of the buildings are flat boxes. just a thought.

Such an original awesome piece of architecture. It also makes me depressed to see that this would have been joined by the likes of the Tour De Verre, now being put in doubt along with 2WTC, equally impressive designs and my favourites along with 1WTC.

I like the flat roof.

I think a spire or crown would look silly on this one. This building would be perfect save for the flat south side.
