The design doesn't optimize the office space.The taller floor will have a very small floorplan

Don't they still have that rule that limits buildings to 30 floors? Does that spire and helipad not count?

You're probably confusing it with the one being constructed in Islamabad, Pakistan by the name Centaurus. That one does resemble this one, after all they're both designed by the same architect: Atkins.

im sure that the second pic in the first post is of a proposed structure in Pakistan.
other than that, the helipad and what appears to be a viewing gallery / restaurent looks very similar to the burj. could have come up with something a little more original.
