I am sorry for off-topic but what is this building? Didn't notice it ever before.

If anyone knows please PM me some link with info on it, there is enough off-topic discussion here.

I love seeing vast greenery in a desert city. The taller this building gets the less skinny it seems to me. It's proportioned very well.
