Well, each to their own.
so keep looking at your 08/15 standard towers, there's enough of them, like 99%. but leave us alone admireing this masterpiece

At the very least, it looks much better than the original renderings from a few years ago.

I'm not fond of the flat side, but this side is actually very interesting.

PHARE's works to start soon

Unibail-Rodamco has announced the beginning of Phare's works in the forthcoming months, early 2012. The Tower's delivery & its urban spaces is hoped for the 1st half year 2017.

Are they going to press ahead despite those final appeals? I guess there's no harm in starting groundworks/site clearance.

I'm not sure that they can press ahead as all appeals must be cleared in the first place to start the construction works. However indeed, I guess they're going to start clearing the site, moving the sculpture "Pouce de César" & so forth...

Even though Unibail has made that announcement, I prefer remaining careful...

@sasa_taisa, it sort of looks like Phare indeed. The Torre Bicentenario is original and quite nice but a bit too angular to me though.

This project is not stunning for sure with the one side being flat and the other curved. Tall -> maybe, but definately not stunning.

(I think the facade is amazing but really needs to be nearly double the height (or half the width) to get the proportions right)

well i hated taipei 101 for years till i wrote a long essay for school about it and then loved it. so its possible that i may like this building when its actually built, but for now im pretty negative about it and am happy the view to it may be blocked by the gorgeous twin supertalls

I said that many times in this thread. I actually didn't like it too until they shown better quality renders and models.

I think it is like with experimental electronic music (or other tough art genres for that matter). It's sometimes hard to listen but when you'll find the beauty in, you will say there's nothing better Because infact I too realise that the shape of this building is a bit confusing, a bit tough one may say, but still the combination of the unique cladding, interiors and interesting way of relation with the surraundings makes me think there is something undoubtedly nice about this tower.
