base cladding is nearly complete, the fins need to be extended on the northern end of the east face.

I would like to ask a question. On the south side of the base of the building, the garage door opening looks pretty good, with its squarish shape resembling the base.



And it even shows up in the renderings.

But on the north, and west sides, the gap was more rectangular. I'm not sure if they still left the gaps, but is that because they're not "significant" entrances? Are they supposed to be completely covered?

It makes sense for the main entrance to be bigger.

I think you need to look up the definition of "realistic".

The mast is wrong and where's the mechanical floors vents?

I agree. Especially if they light it up at night ... in different colors, as suggested by others.

The spire disappoints me, but that's just my opinion.
