It will suck to lose those little townhouses, but I think that BIG will design something really nice for this site.

hmmm. Is the tower topped off at 663’ or was it the top residential floor? Sometimes a topping off is celebrated before the highest point has been reached.
I guess the height difference doesnt matter much, but this tower deserves the extra height.

I walked by this yesterday and noticed they’re taking off the protective screen

the ctbuh has updated their database to confirm the official height at 663’. Still a 200m (656’) skyscraper, but not by much.

amazing how better materials can make or break a design. If this were done cheaply it’d look like crap

Great shots, Oppi
