I must say I don't like the tower. The design itself is mediocre and the position right next to those small houses and a lack of space + the lack of any wide roads around it is IMHO horrible.

what do wide roads have to do with it being built??
there's more than one way to travel to a tall building considering this is being built on top of a train station.

I didn't know that. But still, I don't like it's position. Living down below in the shadow must be horrible

Any suggestions for what exactly this big yellow thing is?

The base of a tower crane perhaps?

In what way is that different from any other tall building ever constructed anywhere in the world. I'm sure having an apartment at the base of the empire state building is similarly shaded!

The only detailed ones I've seen are a couple for the appartment floors. See post #1205 of this thread, pretty spectacular..
