It might be a bit different since it's facade is so different from the Twins. I would more compare it to the the Goldman Sachs Tower next to it or to the Bank of America tower

You can still see his pictures on SSP, without any registration, or on his Flickr account.

A thread for the mall wouldn't make any sense at all. The shops will be located within the basementlevels of T 2,3 and 4, and the transit hub, and we already have threads for each named structure.

I hope the spire is lit up with some awesome lightshow or something - not tacky but elegant.
The building will look magnificent at dusk, from some angles it'll reflect the last rays of sun's light while tenants start to light up some recessed lights. The building will be "lit up with little sections off and on", but this "effect" is only achieved once tenants have occupied the floors, they are the ones in charge to enclose columns and ceilings, separate areas with walls and add the type of lights they need depending on the area (cubicles, conference facilities, etc.)

The retail area will be spread throughout the site, below tower One, across the East-West Corridor, in the outline of the Transportation Hub and below & above-grade Tower 2, 3, & 4. As you can see, there's no need to open a thread for the mall.

This number was estimated by STR on SSP, after he scaled the renders. Thats also what i mentioned in the dedicated thread. It's nothing confrmed, even the renders aren't 100% serious. Don't take this number too serious. It might be shorter.

Fassade looks great so far. Seems at the end the results will meet the high expectations.

Btw.

Off topic: Well, as a height fanatic I really hope that it'll (440) be 433m

Btw, I have a good scheme here that shows the underground retail areas

There's definitely a lot more to it than what is visible above ground. That's what makes this site 10x more amazing than just any old skyscraper.
