That sounds like an interesting idea, to be frank.

So far in latest renders, that seems to be the final plan. Original renders actually had a bland, boring white spire that drew negative criticism from many people. Even I had to agree with Chicagoan that boring spire is useless in lifting the building's overall design (and a cheapskate attempt to reach megatall status). But since they changed it to an elegant all-glass diamond-faceted blue spire that compliments the building's design, I no longer have problems with it.

Hopefully it doesn't turn out like Vincom Landmark 81's spire. It was supposed to be an all-glass crown in the render but they changed it to a porous metal cage spire that doesn't go well with the building's overall design.

Indeed, I agree with everything you've said.
A glass covered spire will complement the overall crystalline design in a great way as compared to a metal one. Looking forward to it.

I like the design as a whole, it is playful and eccentric but it doesn't go into extremes either. Somewhere along the way it manages to find a perfect balance of not being tacky nor plain.

It even evokes a feeling of an early 80's futurism. Similar to what Dallas's Fountain Place aspired to achieve very early on, in the 80's, obviously having a much different proportion, height, decade of construction.
Note how the whole structure is covered with glass. It also plays with angles and light.
Sigh. Even in the 80's the architecture was braver in the US, nowadays every single tower proposal is just so plain. People don't like for the cities to end up looking as distasteful as Dubai, so they end up with yet another extreme.

Anyways, the gorgeousness in Dallas I used to draw a parallel with.

The spire looks very similar to the proposed Burj 2020 Uptown Tower in Dubai.

The lobby design invoke a strong Neo-Brutalist vibe with a strong marriage of contemporary style and traditional heritage. I like it a lot. I can see how they incorporated Minangkabau roof style with Stonehenge design for the reception desk. They also updated the exterior podium design. Now it look more practical than before. The waterfall in the mall is something new. It was never shown in any render before. Hopefully it works
