An amazing and elegant design. This strikes me as a more complex and modern variation of the Sears Tower in Chicago ... the idea of tall "bundled" boxes. Does anyone else see the similiarity?

I agree about the similarity to the Sears tower as well. Still, I believe that the very fact that the overall appearance of exterior cladding shown in the renders slightly resembles that of Bruce Graham's most famous creation only adds extra points to the recognition of Graham as an architectural icon and his gargantuan bestowal to the worldwide architecture as a whole.

There is a big space between second and fourth blocks, making the third block hanging in the air!

^I think that somewhat refutes that earlier comment about there not being walkways between the sections...

I think it's just been announed as 281 metres to the roof, plus architectural features, which should take it to 302.

Or of that Sony commercial with the robot-puppy jumping on the moving 3d equalizer. Remember that one?
