Great massing and form, but the color is a bit much.

The shape is a bit old-fashioned and has been used many times in the 90's.No comments about the golden cladding

Ugly, old-fashioned, tacky. If this is going to be the tallest tower in Israel than its a sad day indeed. Hopefully Ramat Gan muni will force some changes.

Okay. The massing at the top, with all the setbacks, is an improvement over the previous version. The shaft is alright. The base is weak. Of course, the gold-tinted glass is terrible.

But what bothers me almost as much as the glass is that the design doesn't have anything to do with Israel. It looks like a New York or Las Vegas wanna-be. By contrast, the first version, the best IMO, seems very Israeli to me.

if this tower will actually be built, i'm sure it won't be golden. it's just a basic render
