In terms of the look of the building, I wish it was even taller with a smaller crown.

The horizontal lines kill this tower.

Makes it look pretty bad.

I like this tower, but I know what you mean.

That said, look at most other buildings in downtown. They lack the sense of verticality that comes from de-emphasising horizontal lines. Their facades are grid-like.

I've noticed, along with flat roofs, this style is common to many western cities.
