Have they started building up again or are they still working on the transitional floor?

If you zoom in on the render it looks like the brown accenting on the glass ends at the first setback. I hadnt noticed that before.

Is this still a building with two separate roofs? Like the original had roofs at 691 and 570 feet or something.

If youre talking about the thinner part on the rear of the tower that part was chopped down (thankfully) and theres only 1 part of the tower that rises from this point on.

OK so part of the tower ends at this height, correct?

Yup, this diagram shows the part that was chopped off.


The original version of this proposal which was 775 feet did not have the rear tower either, it was added after the height chop down to make up for lost space.
Im glad they got rid of it because it was clearly a tacked on afterthought that ruined the original vision of the proposal. Its shorter now, but the aspect ratio is basically back to where it was supposed to be and the general shape of the tower now matches the original vision.
