The spire looks like crane trunk. which isn't common.

Do you really think it won't be secured by barrier or it will have a barrier with big gaps and people will be falling there like every day or what?

^great shot. very majestic
just on the fence barrier on roof. yes the parapet will be glass (for obvious reasons) probably 3m high. even if someone wanted to scale it and jump, there is a gap between parapet and tubular frame. which person would fall to about 10m below.

Is that gravity ride at 500 metres high? Never knew that, it would be the highest ride in the world of any form.

i heard about this building a long time ago, and thought it would never be built
all the renders looked like it could snap like a toothpick
i just happened to hear the name today, and i remembered it
i didnt know it was actually being built
it looks a lot better than the renders though
