I'm still trying to like the design... it does serve as a nice counterpoint to the west tower, though it looks very 'American skyscraper' in design. Just my opinion...

To be honest, I think a spire could look good on it, making it like 600m tall like the TV tower...



Just my opinion of course, I love spires, no matter how much many of you consider it cheating...

This building is a nice contrast in style to the west tower.
It would look better without the spire, or with one that is shorter.

The spire design was improvised by me in Windows Paint in 2-3 minutes with no regards for its actual height, only to showcase the idea.

530m is the real height without any spire. Said spire is purely theoretical.

I'll bet this one is well above street level before the end of the year.
