To me it's like so weird how when I look at a picture of a building or tower like this one, it looks so short. But when I actually go there, it's like the tallest thing in the world!

I think the way this building tapers is awkward looking.

I was thinking the same way when I saw the renders back in the days, but the actual construction changed my mind

I think it looks a little out of proportion at the moment, but as the tower rises it will look better. The taper seems very sudden currently.

I don't see where this building tapers any more than it does in the rendering. It looks good in the rendering, it will look good in real life.

The tapering doesn't look that evident.. It will be a masterpiece in the end...
This and Golden finance,, are the best things going on at this time.
especially since ST has topped.
We need new/updated pics Inno,, You on vacation/holiday?

because it's quite wide for its current height. but as you say, it'll look alot better when it's topped out.

In the more distant views, the tapering is quite evident.

I guess the core should even top out around august next year, according to old schedule plans!

The core seems to go up to around 460-470m, the rest is the steel lantern construction. This lantern might take long i guesss.
