It's a nice filler, but that's about it

They should have kept the excellent old design (260m), just add a few floors, increase the height of the roof feature and integrate a spire on top to reach the supertall status.

Its all good!

But if this will introduce that purple glass color to SZR on a supertall, then I think its not bad at all.

Why there is not a sign of cladding yet? At least some testing panels... It's pretty high now... But when completed, I agree it will be nothing more than a skyline filler... But one of the better looking.

Please...even this is exciting. I would love for a building this high to be built in Baltimore.

We are biting our nails just waiting for ARC wheeler to start building the new 717ft 10 Inner Harbor tower!

All we can see is the bare concrete form. Why not wait for the cladding and detail before writing it off?
