Out of all the skyscrapers I personally find that this one has taken the longest to progress. It just seems to drag on! (Don't get me wrong, I do love it!) I still think it should be called the Duracell building!

I suppose this is part of the original complex from the 90s. The project wasn't done all at once.

Can't believe my eyes, but this building looks like a supertall to me. It looks very tall indeed.
I like it.
