I didn't realize until now that this is going to be taller than the CN Tower in Toronto. Very interesting.

this tower amazing but i think it doesnt resemble renders. In renders there are wavey designed steel pipes but the real tower doesnt have that.

i hope this comparison between a render and a photo explains what i mean:
