It looks OK to me but it seems too damn skinny to be an office tower. I'm use to seeing office towers that are "fat" like the old WTC, IFC, ICC, Sears Tower or SWFC.

Yes soil testing now but I do think it'll be a good while before it's properly under construction. All those solar panels, new technologies, etc

Very futuristic and -in line with current public opinion-enviormentally friendly design. This will be a monster when it's completed. Imagine how extremely large those difc logos will be... :o

I didn't realize that this building had wind turbines on the upper levels, I think I like this building now.

Sweet! Renders helped showcase an amazing amount of detail and planning with this building even though at first glance it looked plain.

Can't wait to see this one rise up amongst everything else!

Thank you Imre, this photos are perfect.

This tower is stranger, but is very futuristic. Only a bad thing, the last 100 or 150 meters don't have habitable floors, isn't? It's a waste of space of the tower, but it doesn't matter, the tower looks great.
