Only a proposal and already an internationally-known icon.

This tower reminds me of the Tomorrow Square in Shanghai or the 23 Marina tower in Dubai.

The shape of this tower is pretty interesting, just not the exterior, it's horrendous .

Looks like the layout view of a cruise ship.

The design is very uniqe, as previously stated it's like something designed for Dubai, as if to show off. Houston has many beautiful but non-descript highrises, something like this would be a landmark, something to stand out when people see photos so they'll realize right away "Ah, I know that's Houston" Like the Twin Towers, Sydney Opera House, St. Louis Arch, Seattle Sky Needle.... it's just a shame it's not in the downtown.

hahahahahaha! the toilet plungers! and don't forget it is part clock tower too(about halfway up). This has to be a joke. Who would come up with this?

At least with the clock tower you would know the time of your death, as you would have to immediately kill yourself after viewing this monstrosity.

I'm not sure if the toilet plungers are a slap to Houston's massive blue collar labor force, but the entire building is a disgrace.

The design is a brutal mix of both Dubai's Elite Residence and Al Yaqoub towers.

Most likely new renderings will be released.

Looks like something out of Malaysia, or an Asian country that is desperate for their signature tower. Looks better than anything Houston is proposing honestly.
