I love it, and would be proud to have it in Pittsburgh!

If it lacks anything, I think it is very handsome as is, but I think one of the things builders and financiers of highrises should consider is that the only difference alot of times between a average building and a truly memorable one is a impressive spire or dome or whatever "roof-accessory" you want to call it; Imagine the Chrysler tower in New York for example, it would be a boring average looking rectangle of a building without the great metallic finishing spire.. But instead it is known throughout the world as one of the most classy scrapers ever built.

So I personally think the little semi-circle modern crown of the E-Tower is a suitable cap, but a little bit more grand of a roof finishing would no doubt give this tower a more famous look to it; But regardless it is very nice already!
