Drawing a unfinished building

I have been thinking about drawing the Ocean Towers in South Padre Island, but I have a question:

Should I draw the building as it was expected to be built, or how it actually looked like before being demolished?

This also raises questions about the actual building height: Emporis (and this site) give the height as 143 m, but CTBUH shows a height of 116 m.
I guess the difference in values comes from additional features on the top of the building that were never built.

if it was destroyed it will never be seen complete So I guess it would be better to draw it unfinished, and if you want and have time - by its render as secondary drawing

Ok, I guess that the height might need to be changed then: 116.1 m from CTBUH.
(Mostly likely this height is from the unfinished building, and current listed value here at SSP is the "would-be" height.)
