Cladding already?

This looks like it's going to be one of those buildings that will be pretty much complete once it's topped out; it'll be a slow riser but we'll pretty much get its full and final form once it's topped out

I just realized the 252 logo is designed to immitate the building's curved indentations. Pretty clever

Yeah... I like that they're trying to do something different, but it's kind of a failed attempt.

This tower IMO is ok. The previous design would have been amazing.

I think it's perfect. The city would look weird if all the buildings were crazy like the previous design. I think only taller and more prominent towers should have the creative design. That being said there is always some room for fun on the shorter buildings such as the pyramid.

I always found that the original tower design didn't look right... It was a cool concept but the proportions and everything looked off
