^ That first tower is to be topped by about 25 floors of residential space, so it won't be as squat and blocky as the rendering makes it out to be.

Well, if you base it on those renderings, you are quite right. However, I speifically marked the potential heights to give an indication on how off the renderings actually are
in terms of height. The office towers on the eastern yards will be higher than the towers of the western yards, which are marked. No buildings are designed, but the
renderings are meant to give an indication on how the devepment would be built out. In that sense, it's very accurate.

And Merry Christmas everyone....
