I wonder about the engineers involved with that Cartagena project-what were they thinking? It is almost like the skyscraper equivalent of the Tacoma Narrows bridge..except this did not get finished and then completely collapse(fortunately). I actually like the Pentominium design myself.

My friend this building is designed by World's FIFTH largest Architectural and Enginering firm (AEDAS), not by some cheap chaps.

Well I never implied that this tower was designed by anything less than the best..and I am sure this will turn out to be a wonderful tower.

if your talking about skinny, look at rose rotana, dubai up close (in real life). it is actually sooooo skinny and on such a small footprint. kinda scary! this tower is soo amazing now, and the height is so great! the idea of the serrated edge does grow on you!

No idea about the enginneering part, but they are the Architects. Maybe a quick look at their website might reveal something.

Noting strange about it, just a bit funny to see B & O on a 516 meter tower poster, when you are from Denmark where there's nearly no real highrises.
