Probably it'll be tallest tower in Istanbul (and Turkey) because still we don't know Diamon of Istanbul's final height (240 or 270)

I'm pretty sure we can expect amazing and colorful light shows at night like those with Torre Agbar in Barcelona.

^That garden opinion is weird indeed. Is a 'scraper which will get built in main cluster of Istanbul really right place to do this kind of strange things ?
Are we going to able to see those trees from outside of the tower ?
