It's easy to compare because second tall tower of the complex topped already and it's 90 m tall.

One thing that I found odd in Poland, was that their subway/underground was actually above ground! urban trains running on tracks alongside street, taking up room and looking pretty mechanical/unattractive. Saw them in Warsaw but also in Breslau. I suppose, given the relative sparseness of population, Poland may never need to spend the money and hassle to put their underground actually underground!

A little off topic but have you ever considered how f*ckin awesome the name WARSAW is for a city??? Honestly, I would be intimidated constantly if a town next to where I live would be named WARSAW… they could just go for it any day…

Warsaw has tramway network, subway network and train network. I don't get what is so odd with it? More the better. I believe Americans simply cannot wrap theirs minds that public transportation system can be good, clean, fast and efficent.

Great render showcasing how Varso will fit into and change the booming Warsaw skyline next year, among many other projects currently U/C:

Warsaw is more and more impressive! Nice evolution from the Soviet union to today.

The building will be very impressive and will completely change Warsaw's skyline. It will also add a completely new and very important center of weight to the skyline.
Some visualizations exaggerate the effect of the spire - it won't look that bad. From some perspectives, sure, maybe a little bit awkward, but most of the time it won't be a problem.

Here are some visualizations from Google Earth that I made. They should display the perspectives very accurately by rendering the height to the roof and with the spire in accordance with reality. IMO most of the time the spire will foster impressions and project a nice verticality.
