Looks nice. But exterior lot like the destroyed New York WTC twin towers. Turks have a rich architectural history. Why not incorporate some of that local elements for your central bank design?

The tower is 310 meters tall "as a building structure" (and 360 meters tall "with antenna towers"). The information is from the web site of the Limak construction company, building the tower.

“... The Central Bank building located in the İstanbul International Finance Center, which will make great contributions for the economic strengthening of our country and increase its competitive power; it will be the tallest building in Europe when it is completed with a height of 360 meters with antenna towers and 310 meters as a building structure...”

I really do not understand why the developers of such projects always claim to have the tallest, although this is not true.
Lakhta Center in St. Petersburg is the tallest skyscraper in Europe followed by Federation Tower in Moscow.
Perhaps Turkey considers themselves European, but they think Russia is not?
