That steel is absolutely massive! The core alone will be a behemoth.

Well, it certainly doesn't look like the cladding on renders. Hopefully they didn't change it.

Actually, it sort of does look like the cladding in the renders. Look at cladding on the outer edges of the three wings. That's what it looks like, IMO.

^^ It's flat on the edges. The test cladding shows something different.

^^Yeah You are right!!

There, the facade design is flat, but still very good looking. Usually I would be able to identify the better of the two, but I love both facade designs in this case.

doesn't change the appeal at all for me, both styles of claddings work perfectly fine and the building is nevertheless just a masterpiece :cheers:

I find the new one even better. Nice change from countless of flat-glass towers (not that the previous version was bad... or flat ;) ). Really nice detailing on this one. Given they also designed Kingdom Tower I still have hope the final versions of kt will be better cladding-wise.
