It’s bullshit that this one got the height cut. If anything it could of used another 200 feet.


#1620

Wow it really is still pretty tall looking even with the height chop.


#1621

It looks like they made some alterations to the crown. Very beautiful looking tower. To the novice eye, this can easily be mistaken for the ESB from a distance.


#1622

And it most likely will be from the distance^


#1623


Also noticed the 3 big floors under the crown is most likely the observation deck floors


#1624

this is a real treasure. Curious to see how the lighting works out, if it abruptly starts at the crown it won’t be as elegant as this rendering, imho.

I think the observation floors will serve as a sort of “collar,” helping the transition between the crown and the rest of the tower. Because of the high ceilings, they will appear bigger and brighter than the office floors, even if there’s no specific exterior lighting.
