No, it is because I hate the design.

Btw, yes, 50% of the building's height must be usable space in order for it to still be considered a building, not an observation tower

I'm kinda surprised that we still don't have any 50%/50% buildings. After all, cheating the CTBUH for height is so easy

Only 20 floors? o_O;; I wonder how a building of that size would have so few floors.

Looks spectacular, but a big waste of money- currently not lying around.

I don't think this was ever seriously intended to be built, and this thread should be deleted.
