I love the design. I also love how we're able to throw around numbers like 400 meters, 500 meters, 100 floors, 1500feet, 120 floors easily these days.

Is it one of your fascinating models Malec?

Btw, i think that the podium wont fit because the buildings nearby just have a 4 storey podium but the marina towers' podium is ~8 floors.
It'll be distorted.

It's cleverly disguised to look like 8 stories, it's actually be 15-stories high

That render (2 posts up) is the oldest one. I based my renders from the model shown at cityscape. In fact there are more renders available and I forgot the skybridges.

From what we have heard the design is not final and it is not yet approved by the Authorities, so who knows what will happen (to the design).

that's good to hear, lets just hope they change the design and not the number of floors

At a minimum, they need to reduce the podium size and remove one tower or make them much thinner with less units to allow some light through. Too many units here packed in for maximum greed and disregard for the area.
