Very nice but the render gives the impression that it is at least 250 metres

what gives you that impression? the buildings to the right are just 2 or 3 storeys tall. it actually looks smaller, than 137m....

really weird idea...a skyscraper in the middle of nowhere. reminds me of that crazy skyscraper hotel proposal in davos, switzerland.

I don't think rural or semi-rural alpine regions are suitable for skyscrapers. nice design though ...

Sleek... and the contrast with the surroundings is quite dramatic.

I'm a big skyscraper fan, but....please, don't build one there. It ruins the view of the far more beautiful mountains.

This would fit well in Vienna. Not on some random roundabout

I like the 3 larger floors about a third of the way up the tower. They would seem very impressive from the inside. The top of the tower looks a bit messy though...

The tower is nice but not at this location. The tower spoils the whole valley.

I think the tower works here. It would be cool to reach the top of one of the mountains in the background at night and look down seeing this tower as some sort of beacon other than some scrambled village.

Woah! Beautiful! BTW, I think that is not the actual background. Its actually in Vienna if I am not mistaken.

Cool, but this is a village right? This buissness tower is good for this small "town"?
