I agree, because leaving it out would completely ruin the design.

Even though it looks okay (nice actually), I would be disappointed if they cut the spire. I'm not worried too much though; the plans had to go to the approval process and a design change this late seems unlikely. It's not that long till we find out, though.

And here's the only diagram on SSP I found without a spire. It looks like they cut the whole top part and tweaked the rest.

If they cut the spire, I hope they change the top to something looking like ICC in Hongkong:




edit:
Nevertheless I am also hoping they build the spire!

Not for a long time though.

Please don't post this "spireless" crap unless you are 100% sure there will be no spire. Rumours are not taken lightly here.

We need not be too eager. Lack bit for the structure to the point where we will know the truth, I really hope it's just a rumor.

All the tower's character would be gone. Let's try to process this image just in case.

I really like it. A building can converge to a pinnacle without having an actual spire. I don't see what everybody's freaking out about.
