Ouch! I have a feeling that it will end up like this with the Samsung render.



I like the other renders though especially the first one. I hope they will build that one.

The main construction of Russia Tower still didn't start, I think they will increase the height to 616+m when this will start rising

I'm sorry but that proposal doesn't look practical at all. Looks like a pipe dream to me

Hehe Russia Tower adds additional wings to get 630m then Chicago Spire adds a SPIRE to get 630m then they match for 2nd tallest!!

The waterdrop onion thing appears to have a HUGE POINTY SPIRE. If that has 150 floors then a HUGE POINTY SPIRE it can't be 615m, more like 750m to the spire tip.

750m, not even close. it's definitely under 690m

I like the building, very interesting design, but the spire is ridiculously tall. I'm not sure it even really needs the spire (design-wise).
