It certainly is!

Once there are more floors built and the painting begins, the effect will be something else - @ such a cool height too.

Thanks for the pics guys.

^ I too have been surprised by how tiny the floor plans are. Kind of a shame that so much land has been taken up by one narrow building, but at least the building will look great.

I think its great that the tower footprint is about 1/3 the size of site, as it won't allow other towers yet unbuilt, to completely hem in, or be built "shoulder to shoulder" with it. Kind of like preserving it's own views....
