definately a GREAT design , but imo not the right for such heights, it should be more slender. From theese renders it doesnt look higher than 350 - 400m......but hey dude the idea with putting the renders on a black background is awesome, will make it this way for my upcoming projects.

Exactly, if it really was 771m it would be way too massive. The design is not bad but I would make it something around 70 floors at the taller tower and around 400m max.

Well, ok, but that way the floorplate is really massive and light will hardly get to the inner parts of the building... And there would be more fire stairways needed... Such tall buildings need to be thin or have unique multiple wing design... Look at Chicago Spire, Burj Dubai, Russia Tower...

typical floor plates are from around 20 - 30 cm thick.

i give you a tip use the "scale" option and scale them in terms of widness so that a tower ist maximum 70m wide and show us the result pls!
