This There's no point in leaving completed tower for years before everything else is done. They will probably arrange everything else so the whole city will be finishing around the same time. I guess there will be some advanced construction in the area when the tower is half finished. Like in two or three years from now.

That stupid observation deck still bothers me. It looks like a wart on an otherwise beautiful building. They could have(and still could) come up with a better design for that. I would like something that is 360 all around the building, maybe a 3-pointed "star" with the points jutting out of the "gaps" between the three "arms" of the building, or roughly in that area.

In the render above it looks more like a (half-full) tick than a wart. I pull those out of my dog regularly.
