Just read an article claiming that this projected is slated to begin at the end of the year! The height has been reduced from 518m to 430m (so still f*cking huge--at the moment).

Some people believe this is the new design, but nobody confirmed it:

I actually liked the 'hand' design way better. Unique but still good-looking.

Also the new proposal looks shorter than 518m. Probably something in the 350m-400m range.

I disagree, this new design looks 430m exactly and this is by far the cleaner/superior design. That hand design although was very nice will never see the light of day in it's form or height, it is nothing more than fantasy.

After the disappointment with the San Francisco SOM proposal being declined, we finally get some good news which is a relief.

To add, cost to construct a tower in the first design shape would be huge when compared to this design... Hope to see more render...
