This design screams spire like few others do; the way it gently tapers just has to be topped with a spire, even a shortened 20 meters one would do.

Scream to you maybe, not for me, never liked the spire. Crystal shaped crown fit better to this design than a spire imo.

Since the building don't have any setbacks (ESB, Burj Khalifa, Trump Chicago, etc) spire look just a cheap way to gain height.

Hope they will build it to 600m, but I'm afraid they will go the "cheap way" and also cut from the height of the main portion of the tower, to have like a 575m tower with a 25m spire.

Well, if we have to dream, I would prefer a 660m to the roof.

I would prefer 560 to the roof + 40m spire.

The core alone has topped out at 555m already

Initially it was 600m to the "top" + 60m spire.

Now will be either 600m to the "top" with no spire or 570-580m with a 20-30m spire.

I prefer a 600m building to the roof than a shorter building with even a shorter spire.

Will be really the worse scenario. At least it will have the maximum height with no spire at 600m. Is enough that we lost the spire, to lose also the main building height so that we have a small "height pusher" on top.

Better have a full building to 600m than a shorter with extra spire to reach 600m.

OK, so this is final project ?
I can even accept such a design of the top

I never saw the final project anywhere (no official render). I just made that version after they announced that they shorten the tower to 600m, and possibly remove the spire. So is only my imagination (or how I hope the crown to turn out)

When this is the final design i'm more than satisfied. Like luci i was never convinced of the spire version. I hope they don't add any spire at the top

Exactly. Unlike many other buildings that do have spires, the spire is integral to the design of this building. It would totally weird without one.

An apex is as good as a spire, if not better.

I disagree and it has everything to do with the proportions of this particular building. The top portion of the building from the point where the taper begins, needs to be in the right proportion to rest of the building and this segment was designed with a spire. To just lop off the spire changes the design of the entire building.
