Its height and location remind me of the the long elevator ride Tom Cruise took at the end of Vanilla Sky (that tower was obviously CGed).

Personally, I think that if they build a square tower that tall, it should have a much larger foot print and floor area. Trump World Tower, by the UN, has a larger foot print and it's still a bit on the extreme side. And TWT is still well over 400' shy of this Drake.
