Maybe we should all make a customer service call and complain about the design. I am sure 'Steve from Texasland' will be able to help!

That's because its fat. Its like a giant walled castle. Meant to keep out the riff-raff and provide a cocoon for its inhabitants.

I think the rendering was poor. The tower does have a heavy footprint but it will look so much better than that awful rendering.

I only count 44 floors; it have 2 options:
1)It looks smalew because IT is small; 44x3,5 = 154 or 170m
2)Some of the holes are duplex or double floor windows

About the design, I don´t think is bad. Probably will be better finished than the renders

I think the design could be improve, hope India build more supertalls like China. I'm laughing criticizes specially from a country with only one supertall, if I am not wrong, a famous com tower who lost recently his world tallest title.

The design is not that great, they are spending the money.

You're right it could easily fit in Dubai's skyline, no one would notice.

I think it's just a bad render and ugly is a big word, I would'nt call this design ugly but just simple.

This would actually be pretty good if it had nice blue or silver cladding.
