considering that most of the other tall towers are so far outside the city, the two supertalls inside the city center will totally be dwarved, however it is still far away from the city, so instead of towering over everything it will rather be overlooking the city from the background

Decent cladding, that diamond becomes less and less convincing.

I like what barbaric is Posting!!! It looks pretty darn nice!

Hopefully the Diamond looks miniscule compared to the rest.

I wish they could have "Set" the diamond in the actual roof (i.e. below the "cornice") such that the lower 2/3 are suspended inside the crown, and the top 1/3 (the round part of the "diamond" simply sits atop the roof (e.g. a ring).

This is the only way I could think for them to make it less awkward...

The original design design did have it like that, with the diamond set in fins that rose form the corners.

Yes it's looking like it's starting to make an impression on skyline,, and it's not even 1/2 way.

I really like that 'diamond' on top of the tower... First of all it makes the tower higher than the original design, and secondly -> you shouldn't think of it as just a tacky kitsch ornament trying to be classy, but instead of, just as I thought -> an amazing 360° horizontally and almost 180° vertically viewing observation deck ! Just the perfect kind that is ! And it's located at the highest possible location in the building, just as observation decks should be. (unlike, disappointed to say, in the big B.K.)

Actually it seems that they are going to make it in to a restaurant... Nice.



I reposted this picture from page: 47



I would really like to take my wife for dinner up there one day...
