Indeed, it is. The angle makes the buildung look even taller. Beautiful.

In this picture the tower reminds me of a VERY modern version of John Hancock. The beams, the floors, the shape and the two cranes at the top. Hmm... maybe it's just me...

The tower would be ruined if it came to a point. I love this tower though. One of the best towers going up in the world. Better than Trump, Freedom Tower and Burj Dubai. You can really see the difference in floor heights at the top where the towers turns into a hotel.

The X bracing is fantastic - like John Hancock, retooled for the 21st Century.

That's just dumb to change the design. The whole gateway look will be ruined.

Twin Tower West is so beautiful. Why don´t they just build a 2nd one instead of this other design?

IMO they won't be TWIN towers if they change the design of the second one...
