umm I have to say I'm not a fan or impressed. Sorta looks like a core with with 2 things wrapped around it. It's also a lot of wasted space for the cost. Very frivolous project when a lot more could have been done.

I don't like it. This thing will only look good at floor 14. It's just a waste of space and class like someone has pointed out.

The design looks boring to me. Twisted towers have been done many times all over the world and much better than this one. Chicago Spire, Turning Torso, Spiral Towers Nagoya and others have done it better, without this waste of space on the floors.
And the diamond on top is just ugly. They should better change the design of the whole tower.

It may not be particularly aesthetic, but i'm happy too see more unconventional structures being built. We should have lots more creative architecture in this world.

I'm not really a fan of this. In my opinion i think the top ends to abruptly, and i think the diamond at the top looks gaudy ... but thats just me and maybe when its constructed it will look different ... who knows

Although it is hard to tell by those little pictures, it looks like piling is being done, and I see a crane, in which case it should be moved to u/c! Even if you think it isn't, I think it should be moved to prep anyway.
