from an esthetical point of view the spires look so so so wrong. Since they removed the scaffolding from on of the spires, i suppose they will leave em just like that, 2 50m tall toothpicks ontop of 2 supertalls. meh, maybe theese ones would look better without them.

Very true, the "toothpicks" are just for statistics and record lists, one should find a better way to measure the building heights so that we don't have to see so many of those ridiculous "spires"

edit: apart from this two great buildings!

Yes... and as the crowns finally get clad, they might look better and less weird.
