The original one had a big short spire- not a tall thin stick.

I'm going to change this back to 516m since all the indications tell us that the spire has been removed from the design.

Also I have a question for Bramble. How many floors does this tower have (when you include the ground floor, all the mechanical floors, podium, etc, but not basements)? Thank you.

I know- that's the old, small spire. Not that new stick which was put only in order to make the pentominium taller than Chicago's Spire.

But the Chicago Spire is likely not going to be build in the near future, so could that be the reason of the 'redesign'?

Yes, I think that this is the reason...

I wouldn't call that "spire", it is more like a fin.

Bingo...that's nowhere near a spire...a fin is a perfect term.

Is it me or the model looks shorter. Actually it might be just the angle we are looking at it.

So how is Cityscape going? This is an important one, the first Cityscape after the whole subprime crisis.
