I guess so. But the building adjacent to it is ficticious--simply applied for the effect. You can see that the City Center Towers are visible in the background and they are only early in construction. Right now, they are topped off--which means the render is possible 2 or 1 year old.

There is nothing subtle about this tower. It just screams, "Look at me!"

Depite being a little over the top, I still like it.

Beautiful. Perfect. Get it built already!

Now, those dull lumpy buildings in the background... I hope those aren't real (or proposed) too.

The crown is a masterpiece. The rest of the tower isn't much special.

I really like it, but it resembles me to the new tower that it's gonna be built in Paris. Cool tho.

I like it. It would be better if the crown is shortened.

Great crown, but is too big for the rest of the tower. If total height equals at least 550m. then, that beautiful crown would fit in the tower proportionally.

Dont like this, those sides spike out too much at the top, with just one spire, this would look good

It reminds me of Burj Al ALam? Or Is that too far fetched?

On the render it looks like there are actually floors in the crown.

Actually having different sides means that from each angle you get to see something different
