3 level of skydeck all above 527m is great but just slightly lower than burj khalifa observation deck at the level of 555m..based on the diagram,i believe skydeck on level 115 and 116 is indoor while skydeck on 117 is outdoor.So the box thing on top is for VIP and some technical machine.

The tall spire is glass-clad or just frames? Well I certainly hope they clad the spire and make it accessible to visitors.

The design issue with this tower is that, its a directional focus of a tower. Meaning to say, it has a path where the facade is facing in a parallel direction horizontally.

Unlike the Petronas Towers, the design direction is focussing upwards, piercing to the sky, hence it has radial facade where all directions of the facade are to equal in beauty and viewing point. No services exposed. The roof is like an umbrella, covers the whole body of the tower.

The problem with WM is that, the roof has a bare bald roof. Especially at the back. Its like exposing of its skull. Since its a diamond shape concept, the roof/spires can be more interesting than of the PTT if to design properly. There is not enough design developments and exploration for this WM.

Additionally, if anyone have the time to view Discovery Channel for Petronas Towers construction in the making, the architect initially finished off its design with a FLAT ROOF! (Can be seen in the model).

Mahathir at that time was unimpressed with the roof as it is bare and flat. Hence the crown was put to complete the overall design, added additional,50-70metres height.

So my point here is that, WM is actually facing the same situation with the roof and can be made as a case study from our predecessor, the Petronas Towers.

I don't think so with any kings and queens has no "crown" at all. Same goes to skyscraper. Built it with the vision and almighty creation of which and how it should be. If it looks odd and people are unhappy with it, do something with it.

Same goes to bodybuilders, they may have well-built physique, upper body wise, but the leg skinny like chicken leg for example. So he need to improvise his leg to have a neat, balance and perfect impression. Thats relate back with the WM or any skyscraper.

Looks great, I can see their vision, it's like a crystal formation.

With lightings on, I can see this building surpass KLCC's grandeur.

Can't wait for it to be completed!

Even the design is complicated, imagine they put moving LED lights on the zig zag diamond pattern, it will look futuristic or at least tron-like tower from that Tron movie. m2c.
